Following up on RDA P5 in San Diego, the chairs of the “Repository Platforms for Research Data”, “Long Tail of Research Data”, and “Libraries for Research Data” Interest Groups discussed two opportunities for collaboration in areas of shared interest: 
- the definition and development of use cases to map to functional requirements for repository platforms and 
- an “action poll” to identify a subset of the most useful or “favorite” research data management tools, and to promote them. 
The purpose of this joint meeting is to share progress about the two initiatives across the three groups, define a structure for how the groups can interface with each other, and most importantly, for how they can contribute to each other’s work, and collaborate. These two initiatives will serve as examples to begin a larger discussion of other possible synergies between these three IGs, and potentially other groups in RDA.
