Scholarly Communications and Publishing
The University's Scholarly Communications Program, based in the Libraries, facilitates discussion of emerging publication and scholarship models to support campus faculty, staff and student publishing and archiving of scholarly works. We encourage the University community to actively participate in creating a system to best serve campus scholarship.
Evolving models of scholarship encompass many areas: publishing agreements, copyright ownership to information, mandates and requirements from federal funding agencies, new sites and databases containing openly accessible information. The Libraries is committed to supporting researchers, instructors and students with the most appropriate services to best promote, preserve and publish your work.
