Session Chair: Monica Youngman

NCEI is committed to providing and improving core data stewardship services to NOAA, including archiving and access services to meet NOAA’s mission. NCEI has collected many insightful and informative user needs from you over the past several years. This year we’d like to discuss the progress we’ve made, our approach to investing in our services, and specific focus areas where we are improving based on the feedback we’ve received from the community. This session will provide information on how we are transforming them to better meet your needs and gather your input on our progress. Specifically, there will be short introductions on the overall NCEI vision, efforts to improve the archiving process, the Stewardship Business Model, archiving user engagement, digital object identifiers, and access services followed by a Q&A session.

To facilitate the Q&A discussion all questions were submitted via a form.

1. Joe Pica - Archiving Vision and Challenges
