Creating Successful Scholarly Communication with an Institutional Repository

an ALCTS Virtual Preconference

This three-part virtual preconference presents the success two university libraries have had with creating and growing their scholarly communication programs through library-supported publishing and institutional repositories.

The first two hour-long sessions describe how Oregon State University Libraries has successfully integrated its institutional repository into faculty research and scholarship activities and uses SHERPA/RoMEO to successfully engage with faculty.

In the third session, participants will learn how a simple journal host at the University of South Florida Tampa Library evolved into a full-fledged publishing repository for books, textbooks, conferences, datasets, and open-access journals.

This virtual preconference is designed to inform and inspire attendees to just say yes to developing or expanding scholarly communication programs on their own campuses and to identify content recruitment  opportunities for library-supported publishing and institutional repositories.

Session 1. Just Say Yes: The Opportunistic Institutional Repository
Highlights how OSU Libraries and others are inserting the IR into numerous research and scholarship activities and, eventually, garnering support from a wide variety of stakeholders across campus.

Date & Time: Tuesday, June 10 starting at 11 a.m. Pacific  |  12 p.m. Mountain  |  1 p.m. Central  |  2 p.m. Eastern

Presenter: Sue Kunda, Digital Scholarship Librarian, Oregon State University

Session 2. Creating Scholar Commons: A Case Study in Publishing Repository Success
Scholar Commons, a service of the University of South Florida Tampa Library, has become a virtual showcase and publishing venue for USF's research and creative energies. But this is not how it all started. Through our case study, we will show the growth and development of Scholar Commons as it went from a simple journal host to a full-fledged publishing repository, providing opportunities across campus for successfully publishing books, textbooks, conferences, datasets, and open-access journals.

Date & Time: Wednesday, June 11 starting at 11 a.m. Pacific  |  12 p.m. Mountain  |  1 p.m. Central  |  2 p.m. Eastern

Session 3. Engaging Faculty in Your Scholarly Communication Program: SHERPA/RoMEO and Web of Science to the Rescue
A basic overview of the SHERPA/RoMEO database and give attendees an opportunity for guided practice in determining publisher self-archiving policies on their own. We’ll describe how we’ve incorporated SHERPA/RoMEO into our scholarly communication program to engage successfully with faculty and provide participants with our templates and documents, which they can adapt for their own circumstances.

Date & Time: Thursday, June 12 starting at 11 a.m. Pacific  |  12 p.m. Mountain  |  1 p.m. Central  |  2 p.m. Eastern
