On February 1, 2024, National Library of Medicine (NLM) announced the launch of a beta version of a new online tool, the Dataset Catalog. This tool is intended to improve the discoverability and reuse of research data by making it easier for users to search, find, and connect biomedical datasets.  NLM developed the underlying DATaset Metadata Model, or DATMM, to provide information for describing data in datasets and repositories across the biomedical ecosystem.  During this beta phase, NLM is inviting users to explore the tool and provide feedback on both the tool and the underlying data model.  User feedback obtained during this phase will inform future tool development.  During this webinar the speakers will discuss the importance of enabling discovery and advancing findability of biomedical research data and provide an overview of the recently launched Dataset Catalog and its underlying data model.
