Session Abstract:
Centralized or common repositories expose data to new users by bringing together metadata from various archives into a single repository. Centralized repositories also serve as a one stop for data discovery and help increase the likelihood that data will be reused for new research and applications.

Since these repositories expose new users to new data, it is essential that the information provided in these repositories be trustworthy and reliable. Ensuring trustworthiness is an ongoing challenge for centralized repositories.

This session will focus on approaches to ensuring quality and trustworthiness in centralized repositories and the challenges faced by centralized repositories in meeting those goals.
