Welcome – Leslie Hsu, for Viv Hutchison & Cassandra Ladino


· Raad Saleh – (EROS) Brief presentation/discussion on processes for transitioning research data to operational data and examples that may be out there.

· Lance Everette – (WRET/FORT) Connecting the communication between data managers and web masters to ensure Centers are able to properly display data on websites.

Q: Has WRET considered updating the "You are leaving the USGS website" warning message to account for the fact that doi-based URLs trigger this warning despite the links often going to a USGS system?

Q: Can content managers tag a data release to be featured at the top of data and tool lists within the CMS?

From Lance: Thanks for everyone's time today! As usual, I learned some new things that will help me plan the next set of SDC-CMS features. Thanks for that important feedback!
