Western Research Repository

Posted on: Tuesday, June 1, 2010 - 10:00am

Western Libraries is exploring the creation of a Western Research Repository.  You can read more about such repositories with examples and faculty narratives at http://libguides.wwu.edu/Western_Research_Repository. Some benefits of a centralized digital location for faculty research and scholarship could be to:

• support T&P with increased visibility of faculty scholarship
• create peer reviewed online publication of faculty and student work
• propose an alternative to predatory journal costs
• make federally funded research available to the public

If you have any questions please feel free to contact the Libraries' Digital Assests Task Force members: Jeanne Armstrong, Robert Lopresti, Peter Smith and Margaret Fast.
