About the Domain Repositories Interest Group
"The Domain Repositories Interest Group will bring together active data repositories that serve specific scientific disciplines.  Domain repositories provide archiving services tailored to the needs of scientific communities, and they mediate between domain scientists and rapid changes in information and data science.  All domain repositories have shared interests in data curation, dissemination, preservation, and institutional sustainability, and this interest group will provide a forum for sharing practical experience and developing joint projects.  The IG will also develop training and mentoring relationships for new and emerging repositories"
