Digital Research Materials Repository - Curation Pilot

The Washington University in St. Louis Libraries invites faculty and researchers to submit a proposal to participate in a digital research materials repository (DRMR) - curation pilot. 
Given recent federal and foundation requirements to increase the access to funded research outputs, the University Libraries anticipate increased campus needs for curatorial services.​

Submit a proposal to participate in the WU Libraries digital research materials repository curation pilot. For more information visit: libguides.wustl.edu/drmr.




Across the scholarly landscape there is a growing need for the archiving and enhancement of digital materials (e.g. images, spreadsheets, metadata, field data) generated throughout the research process. To address this need, the WU Libraries are initiating a data curation pilot to utilize our current suite of services and expertise to manage, enrich and preserve the outputs of research conducted at Washington University in St. Louis. 

The benefits of participating in this project include: 

  • Enriching your data beyond the standard storage and backup techniques. 
  • Archiving and making your research accessible for future researchers to reuse, which increases your research impact
  • Safeguarding your research time and investment with a trusted, long standing source, the WU Libraries. 
  • Curating your data with the WU Libraries will meet many grant funder or publisher requirements.
  • Improving the discoverability and cite-ability of your research materials, through the assignment of a DOI and the dissemination of your research to international linked data platforms.​
