The Purdue University Research Repository (PURR) is the free, online research data collaboration platform and data management service solution for Purdue researchers made possible through a partnership of the Purdue University Libraries, the Office of Vice-President Research, and Information Technology at Purdue. PURR provides researchers with a virtual project collaboration space, the ability to issue dataset publications with unique Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs), while meeting the challenges of dataset accessibility and preservation. In doing so PURR exemplifies the continued role of Libraries in the research life-cycle of the university by providing a tool and a suite of services that ensure research data’s durability, accessibility, and longevity.
