Ecological research is changing.  Increasingly ecologists seek to harness the enormity of existing scientific data to answer grand scale questions.  The cultural shift towards data sharing and open publication makes data available, but is it accessible?  DataONE search tools enable researchers to find data across multiple repositories in a single search. Boolean, geographic reference, dates or fielded search; there are many ways to discover and download data.  This talk will show you how.
