Abstract

Student research, in the form of theses and dissertations, is nearly ubiquitous in institutional repositories (IRs) across the US. However, students at many institutions contribute far more to the scholarly landscape of their communities. This presentation will explore this untapped well of potential material, report on survey data about perceptions of possible benefits of archiving this student work, and encourage discussion of this exciting new avenue of opportunity for libraries.
