Abstract
Studies have shown that scholarly works available through Institutional Repositories (IRs) are more frequently cited than those solely available through e-journals and/or static websites because e-journals’ subscription can prevent some users from accessing contents and statics website content will not be searchable if the content is not crawled and indexed by search engines. The mission of creating a CWU IR is to capture, deposit, and share the intellectual output of CWU faculty and students, such as articles, monographs, unpublished research, and undergraduate research-creative and scholarly work that is considered an important source of information to researchers and undergraduate scholars. An IR gives life to all of these original works—audio-visual presentations, working papers, reports, conference papers, presentations, posters, theses/dissertations, and datasets—that are challenging to discover and deliver through conventional publishing channels.
