The RDA Data Discovery Paradigms IG ( aims to provide a forum where representatives from across the spectrum of stakeholders and roles pertaining to data search can discuss issues related to improving data discovery. The goal is to identify concrete deliverables such as a registry of data search engines, common test datasets, usage metrics, and a collection of data search use cases and competency questions.

In order to identify the key requirements evident across data discovery use-cases from various scientific fields and domains, the Use Cases Task Force ( was initiated. Direct outcome of this task force is this collection of use cases outlining what users might wish to search for data and what supports they would expect a data repository should provide.
