Advertise, Share, and Discover Data

A new day is dawning for science data.

Libre is a project devoted to liberating science data from its traditional constraints of publication, location, and findability. Libre embodies the spirit of the Polar Information Commons (PIC), which was created to foster a collaborative polar community for open data sharing among researchers. Leveraging open-source technology and data management standards, Libre's Web-based tools and services make it easy for scientists to publish and advertise their data and share it with the world.
