Additional Information

Plans for expansion/future directions: Publishing works from recipients of an Open Access Journal Fund program, also administered by our library, which helps authors pay for OA costs; seeing growth in research datasets, and other material that doesn’t normally get published but may be of value to researchers; monitoring the publication output of our researchers and trying to direct those articles toward the repository.
We don’t consider ourselves to be a “library as publisher” institution at this point, but we certainly do disseminate ETDs and other resources. View All Entries
