for “,” a registry of research data repositories
Winner Blurb: 

The registry helps researchers, students, publishers, funding agencies, and librarians find the most appropriate repositories to deposit and discover research datasets. This international collaboration is led by Purdue University in the United States and by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany, working together with DataCite, a global non-profit organization that provides persistent identifiers for research data.

“The STS Awards Committee is pleased to select as the 2017 recipient of the Oberly Award for Bibliography in the Agricultural or Natural Sciences,” said award chair Sara Scheib, sciences reference and instruction librarian at the University of Iowa. “Working together with DataCite, helps researchers and information professionals from all disciplines navigate the complex world of data sharing and discovery by indexing data repositories. All entries in are reviewed twice by the project team for accuracy. The search, browse, and filtering options make this registry quite useful and the icons and other metadata indicating important repository characteristics (access restrictions, persistent identifiers, etc.) add considerable value. Thank you to the project leaders, Michael Witt and Frank Scholze, for sharing this work with the world.”
