170. How are USGS information products cataloged in and made available from the USGS Publications Warehouse?


Upon completion of the dissemination task for an information product in the IPDS, bibliographic metadata are transferred from the IPDS to the Publications Warehouse for creating product citation pages. Therefore, accurate and complete bibliographic information for each product, including the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) if assigned, must be entered in the IPDS, and the dissemination task must be completed in a timely manner to facilitate accurate and efficient cataloging and indexing in the Publications Warehouse. Publications Warehouse citation pages are web landing pages for the catalog records that contain bibliographic metadata and associated links for each information product.
