Databib is a collaborative, annotated bibliography of primary research data repositories developed with support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

Databib, http://databib.org, is a tool for helping people to identify and locate online repositories of research data. 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 users can browse and search.

 

In addition to the website, Databib is made available using a variety of machine interfaces (RSS, RDF/XML, OpenSearch, RDFa/Linked Data) for easy integration with other tools and environments without restriction (CC0). Databib’s international advisory board represents global support for collaborating to develop such a global registry of research data repositories.

The development of Databib wasinitially supported by a Sparks! Innovation National Leadership Grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
