As the careers of university faculty evolve to include greater varieties of digital works, libraries seek new ways to support the full spectrum of faculty research, scholarship, and teaching. In addition to their formal publications, faculty are interested in sharing and managing a wide variety of materials, from datasets to images, streaming media to 3D models, course materials, textbooks, and more. By understanding the changing nature of faculty needs, libraries can play a key role in supporting them and highlighting the institution’s unique programs and scholarship.
Kirstie Haruta of bepress Consulting Services presents the innovative ways that faculty are producing new knowledge, and how the institutional repository can capture and highlight these academic contributions.
