Introduction to the Ag Data Commons
Tuesday, February 20 @ 1:00 PM -2:00 PM EST

This webinar is a basic introduction to the Ag Data Commons . It is intended for researchers who may be submitting data to Ag Data Commons. We will focus on creating datasets and uploading data resources, rather than how to find and use datasets that others have submitted. We will cover:

  • A brief overview of the Ag Data Commons system, including what to submit
  • How to create and edit a dataset
  • How to add a data resource
  • How to submit your dataset for review
  • Other tips for using the Ag Data Commons for individuals and groups


The original air date of this webinar has passed, but you can view our Ag Data Commons User Instruction Series on the National Agricultural Library's YouTube channel. These video tutorials review much of the webinar's live demo content.
