Hi,

Last year at the annual Geological Society of America (GSA) meeting in
Vancouver, as well as throughout this past year, I have received many
inquiries on availability and access to USGS data now and in the future,
i.e. the data lifecycle :
http://www.usgs.gov/datamanagement/why-dm/lifecycleoverview.php

This past spring, I mentioned the inquiries and interest from GSIS to my
USGS colleague John Faundeen, the lead author of :
The United States Geological Survey Science Data Lifecycle Model
http://pubs.usgs.gov/of/2013/1265/

I know a lot of you still have questions and concerns, so please note, John
will be presenting during our GSIS session on Tuesday at GSA:
https://gsa.confex.com/gsa/2015AM/webprogram/Paper259586.html

John is also presenting a poster on the data lifecycle model during the
Geoinformatics session on Sunday, Nov 1 if you would like to stop by :
https://gsa.confex.com/gsa/2015AM/webprogram/Paper259596.html

In addition to John's presentation during our GSIS session, Carol and
Stacie will also be presenting on behalf of the USGS, so there will still
be a handful of us from the bureau to talk to and hopefully answer any some
of your questions!

To all presenters: Richard, Lori, John, Carol, Angela, Stacie, Shelley,
Christopher, Sharon, Lura, Linda Z., and Linda M.  - *Thank You* for
submitting abstracts and your efforts putting together the materials -
without you, we would not have a GSIS technical session and would miss out
on great discussions about these topics within the profession that we can
bring back to our library users!

I look forward to all of your presentations!

Make sure to preview the abstracts and think of questions to ask the
presenters!
GSIS session=
T95. EVOLUTION OF THE DATA LIFE CYCLE

If anyone wants to join me, I will be attending Marcia's talk
"Deepwater Horizons: Lessons Learned for Better Disaster Preparedness" Nov
3, Tuesday (12:15 pm - 1:15 pm) - and then running to the GSIS technical
session!

U.S. Chemical Safety Board (CSB) Macondo Blowout and Explosion (Deepwater
Horizon) investigation web site :
