The NGGDPP Best Practices project is a community portal for Federal agencies, State Geological Surveys, academic, and research institutions to share experiences and methods used to preserve physical samples, digital data and analog materials. This project attempts to define common practices and standards in geoscience data and samples preservation, as well as highlight techniques and practices identified by the data preservation community as the best in their fields.
