The University Libraries launched the Data Repository for the University of Minnesota (DRUM) in November 2014. This service was developed and implemented by a group in the libraries called the Data Management and Curation Initiative (DMCI) with sponsorship by John Butler (Associate University Librarian for Data & Technology). The project team included Lisa Johnston (Project Lead), Jon Nichols (Technology Lead), Josh Bishoff, Steven Braun, Carol Kussmann, Francine Dupont Crocker, Kevin Dyke, Stephen Hearn, Alicia Hofelich-Mohr, Eric Larson, Erik Moore, Arvid Nelsen, Carolyn Rauber, Justin Schell, Bill Tantzen, and Amy West. The work products of the group presented here include the DMCI Business and Service Model that defines the draft policies, rational for data management and curation services, a proposed staffing model for distributed data curation, and initial first year budget. Other supporting documents for the launch of the repository include the Service and Functional Requirements that led the development of DRUM in the DSpace software (V 4.2) and the metadata schema, based on dublin core, for the data repository submission form and public access record.
