Scholarly Services

Scholarly Communications refers to the complex system of creation, dissemination, and use of the products of scholarship, both informal and formal, and the social, legal, and ecomonic issues involved in those processes. The Scholarly Communications Librarian assists faculty and students in sharing their work, managing complex copyrights, and learn more about the constantly shifting system of scholarly communication in which they are involved. The Scholarly Communications Department offers repository and publishing services, provides education on copyright and authors rights, and creates resources that supports these endeavors, such as VIVO (our institutional repository) and open access journals.
