In Fall 2017, Texas State University Libraries launched the Texas State Research Data Repository as part of the Texas Digital Library statewide consortial Data Repository. This presentation overviews development, implementation and infrastructure considerations for any institution or consortia thinking about venturing down online research data repository paths and open access research data. The Texas Data repository innovatively leverages and customizes Harvard's Dataverse for a consortial university environment. This presentation overviews research data repositories, technology considerations and how institutions can pragmatically think about implementing a data repository from working model perspectives. The session will survey the current landscape including types of repositories, needed external partnerships, human resources, and future synergies with other academic library technology infrastructures. This presentation will also provide a framework for overviewing possible service models, repository architectures and wider perspectives, possibilities, and challenges with regards to data repositories through the pragmatic example of the Texas State University Data repository.
