    • Abstract:
      At the RDA Eighth Plenary Meeting, staff from the National Transportation Library (NTL), part of the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS), introduced the research data community to the efforts NTL is making to open data created by the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT), its contract researchers, and BTS to researchers and the public. Over the past year NTL’s work has expanded far beyond the walls of the USDOT. NTL’s data curation and digital library staff are engaged in federal and national efforts to improve the quality of U.S. government data as it is created, as well as the preservation of these datasets over their lifecycles. Our goal is to improve the quality of government research and statistical data, allowing our data users – from other federal agencies to the citizen data scientist – to make well-informed and robust decisions. This poster will highlight NTL and partner activities around: Data curation community-building across federal agencies; Federal data management and curation reskilling, including curriculum development; Trusted repository certification among peer federal agencies; Creating a network of academic research repositories which are conformant with the USDOT public access plan to ease the researcher’s decision making around choosing a repository for their data; NTL data package requirements for federally-funded public access data to be deposited in the NTL repository; and, Challenges we face as we mature and expand NTL’s data sharing infrastructure and practices. Note: This poster was presented at the Research Data Alliance Tenth Plenary, September 19 to 20, 2017, in Montreal, CA.
