Large scientific repositories run the risk of losing value as their holdings expand, if it means increased effort for a scientist to locate particular datasets of interest. We discuss the challenges that scientists face in locating relevant data, and present our work in applying Information Retrieval techniques to dataset search, as embodied in the Data Near Here application.
