As colleges and universities focus on the student experience, the library can fill a unique role in introducing students to scholarly communications and encouraging student publishing efforts. Undergraduate journals, student research days, research in partnership with faculty co-authors, and exemplary capstone projects all contribute to a campus prioritizing student success.
Phillip Fitzsimmons, Reference and Digitization Librarian at Southwestern Oklahoma State University, and his co-presenters Jeremy Evert and Hector Lucas share three unique perspectives on the goals and results of student-centric publishing at SWOSU, including:
– How the library can support student-centric publishing
– How students see the immediate and long-term benefits of library publishing services
– How faculty benefit in both their teaching and research initiatives
