DataRefuge: Nominate vulnerable data for preservation

As you may have heard, the Penn Libraries have started the #DataRefuge iniative, which at this point is focusing on federal climate and environmental data . The Association of Research Libraries is spearheading an effort to expand this project to preserve vulnerable data at other agencies as well, and has invited Rutgers to participate.

If you are aware of vulnerable federal scientific data that you would like to have preserved, please help us by nominating it for preservation. All nominated data will be added to a list available for institutions to claim and preserve. Rutgers may be able to preserve some data here in our institutional repository, but we need your input rather quickly.

Please reply to me with the name of an agency/office or particular federal research project that you would like to see preserved, and I will forward it for consideration. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.
