Research data is the foundation on which scientific, technical and medical knowledge is built. Oftentimes data sets do not leave the lab, or may go unnoticed as supplementary files. Elsevier provides solutions that support researchers to store, share, discover and use this data. By doing so authors are able to receive credit for the full spectrum of their work, and the wider research community benefits from the ability to discover and reuse the data. They are indexing images, tables and supplementary data from (Elsevier or Open Access) content sources, and are considering these to be research data components. They also index a series of domain-specific repositories, as well as non-domain specific ones.

"EarthWorks is a discovery tool for geospatial (a.k.a. GIS) data. It allows users to search and browse the GIS collections owned by Stanford University Libraries, as well as data collections from many other institutions. Data can be searched spatially, by manipulating a map; by keyword search; by selecting search limiting facets (e.g., limit to a given format type); or by combining these options. Data are available from numerous research institutions across the United States covering a vast array of subjects and base layer information. Thousands of datasets in vector and raster format have been described at the individual layer level allowing for easy searching and retrieval. You will find both public and restricted data. The restricted data are tied to the institution that holds the content" -- Stanford digital libraries blog.

"The mission of Grantome is to use data to drive discovery of new knowledge about scientific research grants. This knowledge can be applied to enhance the productivity and confer competitive advantage for researchers, institutions, and businesses that rely on grant funding. Towards this goal we have collected grant data from some of the world's largest and most prominent grant-giving organizations and assembled them into a single database.To facilitate discovery of the trends related to funding the specific needs of each client, we have built: a search engine that uses the latest technologies to quickly and efficiently extract large amounts of grant data from the database, a graphical interface for real time data plotting of the results of any search, data analysis services for a more in-depth exploration of any particular topic. At the launch of Grantome, grant data are available from the U.S. National Institute of Health, which will be updated weekly as new data become available. In the near future the database will be expanded to include the U.S. National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Energy, as well as federal grant organizations in Canada and Europe."--About page.

At approximately 1 km resolution (30" X 30"), LandScan is the finest resolution global population distribution data available and represents an ambient population (average over 24 hours). The LandScan algorithm uses spatial data and imagery analysis technologies and a multi-variable dasymetric modeling approach to disaggregate census counts within an administrative boundary. Since no single population distribution model can account for the differences in spatial data availability, quality, scale, and accuracy as well as the differences in cultural settlement practices, LandScan population distribution models are tailored to match the data conditions and geographical nature of each individual country and region.

"The Book Citation Index is designed to enhance the powerful discovery and analysis capabilities of Web of Knowledge by incorporating comprehensive book citation data. Researchers can search for and identify the most relevant and esteemed literature along with the 12,000 peer-reviewed journals and 150,000 conference proceedings already indexed in Web of Knowledge, enabling users to navigate the links in citations across books, journals and proceedings. Books are indexed at the chapter level, resulting in improved searches and deeper insights into the citing behavior between books and the wider world of scholarly research.
Content for the Book Citation Index is comprised of scholarly books, both electronic and print, that present fully referenced articles of original research or reviews of the literature, and has been carefully selected based on well-defined criteria to offer the most significant literature available. The index consists of 25,000 books, dating back to 2005. Coverage is expected to rise to 30,000 books by the end of 2011, with 10,000 new books added each year."--Thomson-Reuters press release, Oct. 2011.

"The Geofacets tool is designed to search for, and extract, maps, sections and other geographically-referenced geoscientific data from a very large and growing volume of published content. The interface is both interactive and intuitive, using a combination of a GoogleEarth map-based browser and a text-based search tool to capture georeferenced data and images which can then be collated into an interpretation. Search results are presented as thumbnail images with links to their corresponding read-only PDFs, full text (for subscribers) and pay-per-view (e.g. via Science Direct), and selected maps can be gathered for use in GIS software. All maps are accessible and downloadable, with over 140,000 Elsevier and Lyell Collection maps being tagged with georeferenced coordinates available as GeoTIFFs for subsequent analysis. The Lyell Collection is an outstanding resource covering the two centuries of GSL’s existence. Providing access via Geofacets significantly increases the value of the search tool, as well as increasing exposure for authors of Lyell content."--The Geological Society" website, viewed August 15, 2016

The Technical Report Archive & Image Library (TRAIL) is an initiative of the Center for Research Libraries (CRL) -- in which Stanford Libraries is participating -- to identify, digitize, archive, and provide access to federal technical reports issued prior to 1975. Technical reports communicate research progress in technology and science; they deliver information for technical development to industry and research institutions contributing to the continued growth of science and technology. These highly detailed reports contain valuable information serving specialized audiences of researchers. While availability to more recent (1994́⁰₃current) technical report literature has greatly improved with Internet access via the National Technical Reports Library (NTRL) -- also listed on databases.stanford.edu -- legacy technical report documents remain elusive to researchers. Most large research libraries across the country have sizeable collections of federally funded technical research reportś⁰₄frequently a million or more ranging from several pages to several hundred pages. An example of some report series digitized include: --U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, Civil Effects Test Operations (AEC-CEX) --U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, Lovelace ------Foundation for Medical Education and Research (AEC-LF) --U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, Health and Safety Laboratory (AEC-HASL) --U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, Radiation Instruments Branch (AEC-RIB) --U.S. National Bureau of Standards, Monographs --U.S. Bureau of Mines Bulletin
