Information Access Seminar

Lifecycle Planning and Cost Estimation for Biomedical Data, and Implications for Repository Strategies

Friday, August 28, 2020
3:10 pm to 5:00 pm

Clifford Lynch

Over the past 18 months or so I have had the opportunity to serve on a US National Academies committee looking at approaches to lifecycle planning and cost estimation for biomedical data at the request of the National Library of Medicine. The committee released its report in June 2020. I'll discuss some of the highlights of the report from my perspective, with particular focus on what it implies for our thinking about data curation, repositories, and data archiving.
