Publication Abstract

New practices are emerging in all stages of biological research, from data collection through dissemination of results. In addition, libraries and museums are increasingly being called upon to become the long-term curators and stewards of the range of intellectual products and research data. Through a series of cooperative projects with biologists working in data-intensive and informatics-based domains, we have documented requirements for digital libraries, tool development, and data management techniques to support contemporary scientific practice. Areas of information support that have emerged as priorities to complement the expertise of biological and computer scientists include digital library and repository development, data curation and preservation, ontology and standards development, and literature-based discovery.
