ReSciColl provides a centralized resource for exposing geoscience assets, preserved by states and U.S. Department of the Interior, to increase access and use by researchers, resource managers, decision-makers, and the public. At project completion, NGGDPP grant recipients submit metadata records describing the preserved materials, including access information, to ReSciColl using mdEditor, which provides an updated and enhanced collection metadata profile. States may upload and store data and/or image files with metadata records in ReSciColl to enhance direct access by users. Individual collection items shall be described in flat files (CSV format) or XLSX-formatted files conforming to the NGGDPP metadata schema that specifies metadata elements, and uploaded to their associated collection via a new ingest interface with improved validation and user feedback.
