Ag Data Commons migration begins October 18, 2023

The Ag Data Commons is migrating to a new platform – an institutional portal on Figshare. Starting October 18 the current system will be available for search and download only. Submissions will resume after the launch of our portal on Figshare in November. Stay tuned for details!

Ag Data Commons - Relaunch

The National Agricultural Library’s Ag Data Commons has deployed updates to our look, feel, and function. And the BETA tag is gone!

Submit data* to the Ag Data Commons to meet FAIR data requirements of journals when you submit manuscripts, or public access requirements of funders such as NIFA.

Updates include:

  • New home page design and custom theme
  • Improved support for dataset collections
  • Added new 'Agricultural Economics' category
  • Added 'Software & Tools' tab
  • Improved citation of scholarly publications
  • Re-engineered field collections to support DKAN Paragraphs
  • Added ability to filter by Resources in addition to Datasets, with counts of each content type displayed

Watch for new webinars and training opportunities covering these changes. We welcome your comments and questions at: https://www.nal.usda.gov/ask-question.
