Data Reference Library


Publication Date


The Data Reference Library is an experimental top-level system collection in ScienceBase designed to provide an alternative organization to data assets cataloged in ScienceBase. It was inspired by the development of the Biogeographic Information System and is a virtual component of that framework. The experimental aspect of this for ScienceBase is the overall flattening of the hierarchical system, which has become entirely too complex over time. The Data Reference Library houses data items that are either native to the ScienceBase Repository or metadata items that point to third party data services from other repositories.
