Feedback form is now closed.
Libraries and archives alongside grassroots initiatives are decentralizing data stewardship in order to address ongoing sharing, access, and vulnerability issues facing scientific data. Starting with a brief discussion of different approaches from members of IPFS, Dat project, qri.io <http://qri.io>, and Environmental Data & Governance Initiative (EDGI), this panel and discussion will unpack the distinct perspectives around issues surrounding current data stewardship challenges on existing internet infrastructure.

After this brief panel, the session will move into a conversation based on the different perspectives each project is bringing, starting from recent initiatives from Internet Archive, Dat, and Data Together. Through discussion, participants will guide conversation on how to help frame opportunities for future efforts.
