Evaluating the Options and Forging a Roadmap for Becoming a Trusted Repository

Enabling transparent accountability and establishing trust with its communities are crucial to a data repository because having these characteristics can have significant impact on the repository’s current services as well as long term value. One method for a data repository to demonstrate its commitment and progress towards building its trustworthiness is through gaining an official recognition. However, since there are several standards or certification processes available, it might not always be clear how and why a data repository should follow a particular standard or pursue a specific certificate versus another.

During this session, the session speakers will present their experiences with reviewing and selecting from the various options for formalizing trustworthiness of their repositories, including ISO 16363, nestor Seal, and Data Seal of Approval. The discussion will also encompass the pros and cons, as well as overall value, of undertaking such a certification process.

The session agenda is the following:
  1. Introduction – Matt
  2. “Navigating the Trusted Repository Requirements: A Beginner’s Perspective” – Sophie (NCAR) 
  3. “Selecting and Adopting Criteria to Improve a Trustworthy Data Repository” - Bob (SEDAC) 
  4. “Certifying Trusted Digital Repositories: USGS Use Case” -John (USGS) 
  5. “NASA’s EOSDIS – Trust and Certification” - Rama (SSAI/NASA ESDIS)
  6. “Keep Up the Good Work: Maintaining Trust Between Certification Assessments” - Shelley (AGU) 
  7. Q & A
