CENDI, the Federal STI Managers Group, was formally created in 1985 when a Memorandum of Understanding was signed by four charter U.S. government agencies (Commerce, Energy, NASA, and Defense). From this small core of STI managers, CENDI has grown to its current membership of 13 major science agencies involved in the dissemination and long-term management of scientific and technical information.


The National Federation of Advanced Information Services (NFAIS(tm)) was founded in 1958 to advance scholarly, scientific, and professional research by enabling members to examine issues of content, technology, and business models integral to their future success. Today, NFAIS continues to help information industry leaders-international scholarly associations, public and private companies, libraries, major corporations, and government agencies-stay on top of the latest trends, technologies and research methodologies by advancing communication and collaboration across the global information community.


Founded in 2013 through funding from the National Science Foundation, the European Commission and the Australian government, the Research Data Alliance (RDA) is a community-driven organization comprised of more than 3,100 members from more than 100 countries formed to build a social organization and technical infrastructure to reduce barriers of data sharing and exchange.
