Hey Gang;

I prepared the following bibliography for the Research Data Alliance CODATA
Legal Interoperability Interest Group (
https://rd-alliance.org/internal-groups/legal-interoperability-ig.html).  I
focused primarily on what I know in Geo world.  I wanted to share Canadian
Stuff with them.  I put this together quickly and know I missed stuff,
groups, and people.  Can you point out any others?  I will of course let
point them to the list to let them know who contributed! *French stuff of
course welcome!*



These are not exclusively about interoperability, but about geospatial
data, law and policy in Canada. These however can be used as comparisons
with papers about other countries.  I will contact the GEOIDE project at
Laval University to see what they may have.  I did not include material on
data management policies which discuss legislative obligations nor works on
geospatial data as these are not exclusive to geo.  The InterPARES project
at UBC may also have some papers and I will contact Luciana Duranti for
these as their site is currently down.  It is not an exhaustive
bibliography, but I believe is a good start.

With time I will identify key players, you will see names below and a list
of some ongoing committees on the topic.  Let me know what I can do next to
help.  I start my work at NIRSA at Maynooth in Ireland Sept. 1. and should
be able to surface by mid to late September.

little redundancy ain't so bad sometimes.
