What is a DataONE Member Node?
Member Nodes are organizations that are software enabled (have installed the DataONE Member Node software) to store, manage, and provide access to digital scientific data holdings as part of the DataONE federation of repositories. Member Nodes provide descriptive metadata to DataONE Coordinating Nodes to facilitate discovery and retrieval of data. Enabling access to data through DataONE provides users with additional tools (see the Investigator Toolkit) for data management, retrieval and analysis.
Member Nodes provide access to their own data, and may partner with other data holders to provide access to partner's data and metadata. Member Nodes may have direct connection with user communities and encompass a diversity of organizations, institutions, and capabilities. There are different functional tiers for Member Node services which recognizes that different organizations have different needs and capabilities.
