Description
Through the generous support of Provost Geoffrey Mearns, the Kickstart service was purchased for Cleveland State University’s implementation of Digital Commons, EngagedScholarship@CSU. This outstanding service provided two types of resources to help our repository get off to a quick start. Since our training in early March 2012, we have already entered 1,191 documents and 94 associated SelectedWorks pages. We initially identified 10 departments/units on campus that produced abundant scholarly works. These departments and faculty were targeted for a scan for works in the Web of Knowledge. When results were revealed, we narrowed the field to four units. The works from these units were entered into EngagedScholarship@CSU and associated SelectedWorks pages were created. In addition, the KickStart Team conducted an environmental scan of the ten departmental websites to identify potential areas appropriate for the repository. The service is a productivity and confidence builder for staff and faculty new to the institutional repository world.
