Texas Data Repository: a Year in Review
Anna Dabrowski, Christina Chan-Park, Nerissa Lindsey, Jessica Trelogan, Courtney Mumma, Matthew Mceniry
The Texas Data Repository (TDR) is a consortial data repository using the Dataverse platform. In this presentation we discuss ongoing efforts to develop the TDR as a shared service. The presenters include TDR liaisons from participating institutions. We reflect on the past year of using the TDR and speak from diverse perspectives:  the experience of small and large institutions; institutions with varying capacity to provide data services; and institutions implementing different outreach strategies, policies and workflows. We discuss the progress of the TDR, the value of participating in a consortial repository service, successes and challenges, and future goals.

From Meow to ROAR: University of Houstons Expansion of Open Access Repository Services
Annie Wu, Santi Thompson, Taylor Davis-Van Atta, Bethany Scott, Anne Washington, Kelsey Brett, Adam Townes, Xiping Liu
As part of the University of Houston (UH) Libraries’ 2017-2021 Strategic Plan, a cross-departmental implementation team was formed to expand our open access research repository services beyond electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs) to include a broad range of faculty, staff, and student works. The result of this effort is Cougar Research Open Access Repositories (ROAR): a portal to the UH Institutional Repository (UHIR) and the UH Data Repository (UHDR) which host scholarly works and data generated by the UH community. This presentation details the team’s phased activities including internal preparation, pilot program, and finding and recommendations.
