In fall 2011, the Academic Resources Unit of Tampa Library officially launched Scholar Commons, the University of South Florida’s (USF’s) institutional repository (IR), as a virtual showcase for research and creative energies. Scholar Commons provides digital preservation and free, open access (OA) to all scholarly works produced by the USF Community. Scholar Commons will be a vehicle to drive research communication across disciplines and the globe. This report will review the progress of this initiative through the past fiscal year (FY). Scholar Commons can be accessed at: http://scholarcommons.usf.edu/.
