We describe the NOAO Data Laboratory to help community users take advantage of current large surveys and prepare them for even larger surveys in the era of LSST. The Data Lab will allow users to efficiently utilize catalogs of billions of objects, combine traditional telescope image/spectral data with external archives, share custom results with collaborators and experiment with analysis toolkits. Specific science cases will be used to develop an prototype framework and tools, allowing us to work directly with scientists from survey teams to ensure development remains focused on scientifically productive tasks.
