Abstract: The DataNet Federation Consortium (DFC) is an NSF funded project to build data cyberinfrastructure that supports NSF research initiatives. Specific tasks include archiving data for the Ocean Observatories Initiative, automating Hydrology workflows, and creation of Engineering digital libraries. The DFC objectives include support for reproducible science, collaborative research, and reference collection formation. I will describe the use of policy-based data management systems, and opportunities for integration with the LifeTime Library.
