The Data Repository for the University of Minnesota (DRUM) (http://z.umn.edu/drumposter) is a service that launched in November 2014 enabling campus researchers to provide long-term, open access to their research data. DRUM reflects the Libraries' commitment to providing broad and enduring access to the intellectual output of the University. Making research data openly available in DRUM has numerous benefits, including: the ability to provide a persistent identifier (DOI) to data for citation purposes, compliance with data sharing and preservation requirements of funding agencies, and tracking the downloads of data in order to demonstrate impact. DRUM is one of a number of library data services that include support for writing data management plans (DMPs), training faculty, staff and students in data management best practices, and digital preservation and curation of the digital objects. This poster will describe the open source architecture behind the data archive, the policies for deposit, and the importance of acceptance criteria and curation actions that are taken to ensure that data are discoverable in a way that maximizes potential for re-use.
This poster was presented at the 2015 IASSIST conference in Minneapolis, MN on June 3, 2015.
