New mandates for data management and sharing are going into place every day. As researchers seek out places to share data, they often turn to commercially-owned solutions like figshare. DataShare is a data sharing solution that keeps scholarly outputs in the hands of academic institutions. Using DataShare researchers can: (1) Select data for curation through local file browse or drag-and-drop, (2) Describe data in terms of the DataCite metadata schema, (3) Share data by uploading to a public collection in the Merritt Data Repository, and (4) Discover and retrieve data through faceted search and browse.
