     There is increasing recognition of the need to improve the discovery, access, interoperability, and reusability of scholarly data, which is also a central aspect of the Materials Genome Initiative (MGI) [1]. Tremendous progress has been made in the five years since the launch of the MGI [2], specifically in the area of data discovery and access through the creation of materials resource registries and materials data repositories [3]. However, significant challenges remain in improving the interoperability and reusability of materials data. We will give a brief overview of NIST efforts in creating materials resource registries and materials data repositories, followed by a detailed overview of NIST efforts to: (i) facilitate the development of modular data schemas in materials science, and (ii) enable their discovery, access, interoperability, and reusability through the creation of a schema repository and registry.
