National Agricultural Library (NAL) – Information & Knowledge Management

At the NAL, LAC Federal supports development of NAL’s Ag Data Commons repository for USDA-supported research data. The team helps data contributors create standardized, descriptive metadata and support workflows into the agency’s enterprise data inventory and website. The Ag Data Commons metrics show sustained growth in usage, submissions, and citations. LAC Federal librarians also help to implement and optimize NAL’s GIS (geographic information system) open source database.
