This session reports on two initiatives from the National Science Foundation's DataNet Program. DataNet Observation Network for Earth (DataONE) represents a new virtual organization that will enable new science and knowledge creation through universal access to data about life on earth and the environment that sustains it. The Data Conservancy (DC) embraces a shared vision: data curation is not an end, but rather a means to collect, organize, validate, and preserve data to address the grand research challenges that face society.
