Civic Switchboard
"Civic Switchboard is an Institute of Museum and Library Services supported effort that aims to develop the capacity of academic and public libraries in civic data ecosystems. switchboard This project encourages partnerships between libraries and local data intermediaries; these partnerships will better serve data users, further democratize data, and support equitable access to information. The project will create a toolkit for libraries interested in expanding (or beginning) their role around civic information. In Year 1, to broaden networks and expand resources, the project team will host workshops at two conferences: The National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership (May 2018) and the Digital Library Federation (October 2018). Stipends will be available for libraries and data intermediary organizations interested in participating in these workshops; a limited number of complimentary registration fees for the associated conferences will also be available. In Year 2, the project will offer stipends to partnerships between libraries and local data intermediaries for field testing the toolkit. "

The State of Open Data Report 2017
"Figshare's annual report, The State of Open Data 2017, looks at global attitudes towards open data. It includes survey results of 2,300 respondents and a collection of articles from industry experts, as well as a foreword from Jean-Claude Burgelman, Head of Unit Open Data Policies and Science Cloud at the European Commission. Its key finding is that open data has become more embedded in the research community - 82% of survey respondents are aware of open data sets and more researchers are curating their data for sharing."

"Funded by the National Science Foundation, this workshop series will generate discipline-specific responses from the Mathematical and Physical Sciences research communities to the federal policy requiring open data and the recently-released NSF policy statement on open data. In order to decide how and what to preserve for public consumption, and in what manner the data will be stored and accessed, a series of dialogues is required. Discussions within individual disciplines must reach a consensus on data preservation procedures and data access guidelines consistent with discipline-specific expectations for data re-use, access policies, and the level of burden implied by conservation that is placed on the individual investigator."

Bryan Lawrence : cyberinfrastructure for data
Anyway, I was asked to present a couple of slides on challenges for open access data repositories ... but clearly I don't believe that such challenges are independent of the science, so I produced a few more slides to give context

Panton Principles
By open data in science we mean that it is freely available on the public internet permitting any user to download, copy, analyse, re-process, pass them to software or use them for any other purpose without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself. To this end data related to published science should be explicitly placed in the public domain.

Formally, we recommend adopting and acting on the following principles:

Widespread withholding of data by academic researchers undermines policymaking process
The press release sketches three cases that have a conservative political bias. I'm more anxious to support access than to worry overmuch about policy.

SSRN-Government Data and the Invisible Hand by David Robinson, Harlan Yu, William Zeller, Edward Felten
Rather than struggling, as it currently does, to design sites that meet each end-user need, we argue that the executive branch should focus on creating a simple, reliable and publicly accessible infrastructure that exposes the underlying data. Private act
