Date of Webinar:

Time: 
9 am Pacific / 10 am Mountain / 11am Central / 12 noon Eastern

Webinar Abstract

DataONE is a community driven project providing access to data across multiple Member Node repositories, supporting enhanced search and discovery of Earth and environmental science data. Data and metadata from across this distributed network of data centers, science networks and organizations is discoverable through DataONE Search, the newly released search and discovery tool. This webinar will introduce the community to DataONE, to the distributed network of DataONE Member Node repositories, the types and volume of data exposed through the network and provide an overview demonstration of DataONE Search. We will then describe the recent changes in our v2 infrastructure and show how these advancements allow for new and enhanced features within DataONE Search.
