Using Data Curation Profiles to Design the Datastar Dataset Registry -
The development of research data services in academic libraries is a topic of concern to many. Cornell University Library's efforts in this area include the Datastar research data registry project. In order to ensure that Datastar development decisions were driven by real user needs, we interviewed researchers and created Data Curation Profiles (DCPs). Researchers supported providing public descriptions of their datasets; attitudes toward dataset citation, provenance, versioning, and domain specific standards for metadata also helped to guide development. These findings, as well as considerations for the use of this particular method for developing research data services in libraries are discussed in detail. - Stephen Anthony

A VRE comprises a set of online tools and other network resources and technologies interoperating with each other to facilitate or enhance the processes of research practitioners within and across institutional boundaries. A key characteristic of a VRE is that it facilitates collaboration amongst researchers and research teams providing them with more effective means of collaboratively collecting, manipulating and managing data, as well as collaborative knowledge creation. - Stephen Anthony

CrossRef Blog: Find the Registration Agency for any DOI -
CrossRef has released a new Application Programming Interface (API) tool to allow anyone to look up the Registration Agency (RA) for a given DOI or a group of DOIs. CrossRef is not the only organization that assigns DOIs, and each RA provides different services. For example CrossRef's services include reference linking and discovery services for scholarly documents. Until now it has been difficult to associate a particular DOI with the correct RA. To find the registration agency, simply add "" before any DOI in your browser address bar or program. - Stephen Anthony
