Research libraries’ support for patrons has traditionally focused on discovery and general access for the researcher during a project, and the curation and preservation of original data at the completion of research projects. To be a more active data partner, the library should support campus research both with tailored access to common data needs and better, more active support for researchers’ original data. This briefing presents three research projects aimed at providing better access to scientific data products for the research community: an extension of the digital asset management system to provide better access to 100 years of California weather data; PG-Farm, a project to mirror, archive, and provide access to campus relational databases; and CaSITA, a project to provide GOES-R satellite data products in real time.
