2017 ACRL STS Oberly Award goes to Scholze and Witt

Frank Scholze, library director at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, and Michael Witt, associate professor of library science at Purdue University, have been selected as the 2017 recipients of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Science and Technology Section (STS) Oberly Award for Bibliography in the Agricultural or Natural Sciences for “re3data.org,” a registry of research data repositories.

The award will be presented during the 2017 ALA Annual Conference in Chicago.

The re3data.org registry helps researchers, students, publishers, funding agencies, and librarians find the most appropriate repositories to deposit and discover research datasets. This international collaboration is led by Purdue University in the United States and by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany, working together with DataCite, a global non-profit organization that provides persistent identifiers for research data.
