Digital Scholarship ServicesShannon Kipphut-Smith, Scholarly Communications Liaison
Publishing services at Fondren Library align with the library’s efforts to deepen the impact and visibility of Rice research. Services and resources have been developed to support the creation of scholarly publications created by members of the Rice community. We provide consultations on a wide range of scholarly publishing topics, facilitate the assignment of digital object identifiers (DOIs), and manage several digital publishing platforms.
