Developing faculty-centered services for public access to research data requires university-wide infrastructure and support. Research administration, university libraries, and campus IT must work across organizational boundaries in order to provide seamless services that address funder requirements. At Pennsylvania State University (Penn State), we've developed a cross-institutional model to address issues surrounding research data. This panel will provide an overview of the collaboration points that have been established among various stakeholders including the Office of the Vice President of Research, the University Libraries, the Office of Information Security, and others to develop sound university-wide governance policies and address recent recommendations developed by the Association of American Universities and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities for public access to funded research data. We will also facilitate a dialogue with attendees in which other approaches and information sharing to address these issues will be explored. Of particular significance in Penn State's efforts to support research data management has been an exploration of the research data lifecycle from different points of view including those of the research administrator, researcher, contract negotiator, librarian, and information technology specialist, among others. This analysis has led to identifying barriers and opportunities within the university's support and allowed for continual refinement of faculty-centered services.
