Databib: A Registry of Data Repositories

Thanks to funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services and Purdue University Libraries, there is now a tool to help you identify and locate online repositories for research data.

From the announcement:

Over 200 data repositories have been cataloged in Databib, with more being added every week. Users and bibliographers create and curate records that describe data repositories that can be browsed and searched.
  • What repositories are appropriate for a researcher to submit his or her data to?
  • How do users find appropriate data repositories and discover datasets to meet their needs?
  • How can librarians help patrons locate and integrate data into their research or learning?
For more information or to check the listing out for yourself, go to: http://databib.org
