DataONEpedia: a tools and best practices database
This searchable catalogue by DataONE includes two types of information: a Best Practices database that describes to scientists and students how best to perform a certain data or information management function and a Tools database which includes a brief description of a particular tool that is recommended for use by scientists and students.

Those seeking more information about biodiversity informatics tools and best practices.
A 3-day NSF-funded Informatics Education Planning Workshop was held in Santa Fe, New Mexico June 28-30, 2010. The project was supported through the NSF INTEROP project and the results informed the new NSF DataNet projects, especially DataONE, which focuses on the biological, ecological, and environmental sciences. Two of the activities from this workshop were a Best Practices database that describes to scientists and students how best to perform a certain data or information management function such as naming a file, label columns in a spreadsheet, etc. and a “Tools” database. The Tools database includes a brief description of a particular tool that is recommended for use by scientists and students. The goals for these two databases are: (i) A place where the data can be collected, managed, and updated by appropriate individuals; (ii) Ensure that the collected data can be reused to some degree and potentially presented in multiple different ways; (iii) Cross-referential Best Practices.
