This poster describes the tools and processes by which datasets are deposited in an institutional repository (IR) and digital object identifiers (DOI) are acquired. The Marine Biological Laboratory/Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (MBLWHOI) Library and the Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO) have developed tools and processes to automate the ingestion of datasets and metadata from BCO-DMO for deposit into the Woods Hole Open Access Server (WHOAS) institutional repository. The system also incorporates functionality for BCO-DMO to request a DOI from the Library and streamlines the process by which XML files are generated for DOI deposit with CrossRef, a DOI registration agency. This partnership allows the Library to work with a trusted data repository to ensure high quality data while the data repository utilizes library services and is assured of a permanent archive of the copy of the data extracted from the repository database. This research is being conducted by a team of librarians, data managers and scientists that are collaborating with representatives from the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) and the International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange (IODE) of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC).
