AbstractMarine libraries serve as access points to a multitude of bibliographic information which is vital to the pursuit of science. Yet of growing importance is access to data by researchers. Is there a place for the library in the management of scientific data? In April 1990 the United States National Science Foundation sponsored a workshop on data management at biological field stations and marine labs. The workshop's report, due in October 1990, could redefine the NSF approach to data management and include libraries in the process.
