Spring 1996: Developing an LTER Network Information System for the 21st Century

The necessity of intersite research has driven the LTER mandate since intersite workshops in the early 1980's. Since then the LTER data managers have been focusing on facilitating this research. Recently, the maturation of environmental information management, and advances in technology provide an impetus to accomplish more effectively the long-standing goal of facilitating intersite research (Stafford, et al. 1994). Although computers have come a long way, the fundamentals of managing research information and developing an appropriate system for management have remained relatively stable.
