The LTER Information Management Committee (IMC) has created a significant knowledge base, and made it available through its website, http://im.lternet.edu. That website is being reorganized, and many of its general data management resources are being migrated to other locations, most notably, to EDI (https://environmentaldatainitiative.org/resources/).
