Describing the repository landscape for data curators

We have many repositories in scientific domains for natural and social science research data, and an increasing expectation that primary research data will be deposited there. Data centers and repositories offer a variety services to researchers for this purpose, and a growing community of data managers and curators act as liaisons between primary researchers and repositories. To understand how to work with repositories, data managers need to know their basic features. Several groups have embarked on a discussion of the landscape of repositories and their services, eg, the Research Data Alliance (RDA), the Council of Data Facilities (CDF), and at a recent workshop focused on planning collaborative efforts among repositories in Tempe, AZ, that culminated in an ESIP cluster (Sustainable Data Management). This session will continue the discussion. We will become familiar with the existing and planned material describing repositories (e.g., from RDA, CDF, re3data.org), and assemble questions asked by curators and researchers when deciding which repositories to contribute to, and how to work with them.
