Metacat Administrator’s Guide

Metacat is a repository for data and metadata (documentation about data) that helps scientists find, understand and effectively use data sets they manage or that have been created by others. Thousands of data sets are currently documented in a standardized way and stored in Metacat systems, providing the scientific community with a broad range of science data that–because the data are well and consistently described–can be easily searched, compared, merged, or used in other ways.

Note: If you upgrade your Metacat to the version 2.10.0 or newer, you need to re-index the solr server. The instruction can be found on the regenerating the index part.
