A 2006 paper presented at the European Conference on Research and Advanced Technology for Digital Libraries, "Building Digital Libraries for Scientific Data: An exploratory study of data practices in habitat ecology" appears to address many of the issues that were discussed at
the meeting in Philadelphia in January. Attitudes of scientists toward sharing data, presentability, cleanup and publishing are all addressed in this piece which is available at:
