OMB 1028-0087

The USGS NGGDPP offers financial support to State geological agencies to create metadata that will describe sample sites for State geological surveys that have related site-specific data resources. The purpose of these data collections are to preserve and provide access to samples (and any related data) that have been extracted from the earth to improve the breadth of information that can be used to inform science and decision-making now and in the future. The USGS envisions a national network of cooperating geoscience materials and data repositories that are operated independently yet guided by common standards, procedures, and protocols for metadata. The holdings of all collections will be widely accessible through a common and mirrored Internet-based catalog, the National Digital Catalog. The holdings of the individual repositories will complement each other to preserve the geoscience assets of the Nation and serve as a comprehensive source of geoscience data and materials to serve national needs today and in the future.
