Advertising your data: Agency requirements for submitting metadata

Key Info
Description - a brief synopsis, abstract or summary of what the learning resource is about: 

This training module is part of the Federation of Earth Science Information Partners (or ESIP Federation's) Data Management for Scientists Short Course.  The subject of this module is "Agency Requirements for Submitting Metadata."  This module was authored by Nancy Hoebelheinrich from Knowledge Motifs LLC.  Besides the ESIP Federation, sponsors of this Data Management for Scientists Short Course are the Data Conservancy and the United States National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

As an overview, we will touch the following topics in this module: 

- How the agencies persuade you to make metadata available about your data by submission or publication. Metadata can be defined as descriptive information about your data of the type that is usually found in search portals. 
- Specifically, we will be talking about the National Science Foundation (NSF’s) required Data Management Plan that motivates you to make metadata available.
- The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA’s) Data and Information Policy that encourages you to make metadata available.
- The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA’s) Administrative Order 212-15 that directs you to make metadata available.
- How the practice of submitting or publishing metadata is promoted by the E-Government Act of 2002 (44 U.S.C 3602).
Other topics we’ll discuss include the timeliness of the metadata submission, and some dissemination tools and techniques that can help you make your metadata available to the public. This module is available in both presentation slide and video formats.
