Abstract: Slides from a presentation discussing the integration of support for data set sharing and management in an established institutional repository system, within the larger framework of an academic library that is working to expand its research support services in a climate of budget cuts and decreased resources. UNCG enhances the discoverability of institutional research data and provides a local option to assist researchers in fulfilling requirements set by funding agencies and data management plans through a partnership between the Odum Institute at UNC Chapel Hill and NC DOCKS, UNCG’s institutional repository ( The expansion of research support and data set services at UNCG has brought increased needs for metadata support, both in the electronic systems associated with the project, and in providing training and support to researchers and liaison librarians. The presenter will give an overview of project roles, workflows, challenges, and lessons learned, with a focus on metadata-related issues. This presentation was delivered online on June 2, 2015 as part of the ALCTS Metadata Interest Group ALA Virtual Preconference: "Planning for the Evolving Role of Metadata Services."
