    • Name of the community liaison (the administrator for the community)
    • If you would like IDEALS staff to set up the structure of the community (in terms of sub-communities and collections), an outline of those
    • If you will want individuals or a group to have permissions to deposit into collections or to manage sub-communities and collections, the netIDs of those people (you can manage this task yourself as well). IDEALS staff can also use Active Directory groups to do this.
