Student Scholarship: A Promising Engagement Strategy for Growing an Institutional Repository
2014 DC+GLUG Meeting (2014)
  • M Ryan Hess, DePaul University
Abstract
DePaul University has recently changed its strategy for growing its institutional repository, promoting opportunities for publishing student scholarship. Unlike with faculty works, student scholarship does not evoke strong opinions about copyright and future publishing risks. Instead, it is seen both as a promotional tool for a department or faculty member and as a win for students. Our successes have included student translations of historical French documents held in our library, a student Law journal, a student Nursing journal, student GIS maps and oral histories of artists. The DePaul library will share its experiences with this strategy so that others can apply our lessons learned at their institutions.
