Repositories and sharing
The California Digital Library and the University of California have developed tools to facilitate data sharing. EZID provides permanent unique identifiers that are a useful way to link to data in publications. Merritt repository service enables UC users to manage, archive, and share digital content.
Many fields of study have dedicated subject-specific repositories that accept submissions of datasets and offer publically available data for reuse. DataBib is a comprehensive, searchable catalog of over 500 subject-specific repositories.
