Online networked data research repositories allow sharing and archiving of research data for experiments and research studies. This opens data to modern interoperability and metadata standards for search and retrieval. Located in open scholarly ecosystems, data research repositories are currently being leveraged to accelerate global research, promote international collaboration, and innovate on levels previously thought impossible. Research data repositories open possibilities for collaboration with others. They link data to further content from online publications and aggregation tools making associated documents easily accessible. This paper pragmatically overviews such a data-centered ecosystem at Texas State University Libraries, a large state university research library in the United States. The research then goes on to speculate on possibilities for global research data repository networks utilizing the models presented.
