This webinar is designed to be an introduction to starting and maintaining a geospatial data discovery and preservation solution. While we focus on the work of the GeoBlacklight software and community, we talk about strategies for communicating the overall vision and needs for GIS data preservation and discovery, established best practices for metadata creation and management, and ways for engaging with the library community and beyond.
Upon completion of this session, attendees will have learned about options for providing better access and discovery for geospatial data, including technology and work flow possibilities, and best practices for engaging with the user and data producer communities.
