In December 2019 the US National Science Foundation sponsored an invitational conference convened by the library community (the Association of Research Libraries and the California Digital Library), the Association of American Universities (AAU), and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) on effective data practices. Forty experts representing libraries, research offices, scientific communities, tool builders, and funding agencies spent one and a half days in a workshop environment designing guidelines for institutions to adopt persistent identifiers for data sets and machine-actionable data management plans. In this talk, presented at the Coalition for Networked Information Spring 2020 Virtual Membership Meeting, conference organizers discuss the progress of these implementation guidelines, which after a period of stakeholder consultation, will be published in 2020 as part of the AAU and APLU guide to accelerating public access to research data.
The presenters were Judy Ruttenberg, senior director of program strategy, Association of Research Libraries; Maria Gould, product manager, University of California; Maria Praetzellis, product manager, University of California; Natalie Meyers, e-research librarian, University of Notre Dame; and Jennifer Muilenburg, research data services librarian, University of Washington.
