Dear colleagues,

I am writing to draw your attention to a newly released National Science
Foundation solicitation entitled ''Sustainable Digital Data Preservation
and Access Network Partners'' (DataNet). You can access the solicitation at
the NSF web site:


The specific goals of this program are to support the development of a
small set of full-scale exemplars of new types of digital data preservation
and access organizations that:

(1) combine expertise in library and archival sciences, computer,
computational, and information sciences, cyberinfrastructure, and domain
sciences and engineering;

(2) develop models for economic and technological sustainability over
multiple decades;

(3) engage at the frontiers of science and engineering research and
education as an information resource, an object of research, and a research
entity; and

(4) work cooperatively and in coordination to create a functional data
network with revolutionary new capabilities for information access, use,
and integration without regard to conventional barriers such as data type
and format, discipline or subject area, and time and place.

Please note that an informational meeting for prospective Principal
Investigators will be held 10 am to noon, Tuesday, November 6, 2007, Room
595 NSF Stafford II building, Arlington, Virginia. The informational
meeting will be webcast for remote viewing and archived for delayed
viewing. Details will be posted on the Office of Cyberinfrastructure web
page (www.nsf.gov/dir/index.jsp?org=OCI) or may be obtained by contacting
any of the program contacts listed on this solicitation or by calling OCI
at 703-292-8970.

Please use the contact information on the solicitation to forward your
questions or requests for additional information. Also, I hope you will
share this information with others you think may have an interest in this

Sincerely yours,

Terry Langendoen
Program Director, Linguistics Program and Office of Cyberinfrastructure,
