With eleven institutional members, the Texas Data Repository (TDR) has more than doubled in size in its first year. Last year, Courtney Mumma, the TDR Service Manager, spoke to the Dataverse Community Meeting about the creation of the TDR Steering Committee (TDR SC) and their roadmap going forward. In her role as Services Manager, Courtney functions as a member of the TDR SC as well as a liaison with the greater Dataverse developer and implementer communities. She will address how information gathered from the TDR SC meetings as well as support requests from TDR users and librarian liaisons inside Texas has resulted in external enhancements and changes in the Dataverse application as well as links to multiple data repository registries. The TDR SC has also formed two working groups so far, the Training and Outreach WG and the Assessment WG, to improve the TDR for its administrators and users. This presentation will describe efforts by those working groups to make an impact in Texas, and beyond, by sharing resources amongst TDR institutions, improving outreach, gathering metrics about use and institutional requirements, and creating new open source reporting tools that could serve the broader Dataverse Community.
