> The Library of Congress and the Center for International Earth Science Information Network at Columbia University's Earth Institute are working to create a web-based clearinghouse of information about best practices for preserving significant digital geospatial data.
> CIESIN is currently gathering requirements to gain insight into potential uses and users of the clearinghouse and to inform its development. They have established a survey to assist them in their efforts.
> The brief, anonymous survey is available at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/XVTT92P and all interested community members are encouraged to provide input. The survey will close at the end of August 2010.
> Based on the results of their requirements-gathering, CIESIN will launch a beta version of the clearinghouse later this year.
> Further information on the Clearinghouse can be found at http://www.digitalpreservation.gov/news/2010/20100602news_article_geospatial_clearinghouse.html.
> Please forward this announcement to any appropriate listservs or colleagues.
