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.
