Model Collections: A New Resource Just in Time for Open Access Week

We’re pleased to announce a new resource: Model Collections!  Organized by discipline, these collections are designed to help you and your liaison or reference librarians further engage faculty with your repository initiative.  More specifically, we wanted to provide samples of each possible type of collection that a department might want to showcase.  We hope that you and your liaison librarians will share these examples of services the library can offer when presenting to departments.

So far, we have collected together some exemplary journals, conferences, faculty and student research, books, special collections, and other content in the following disciplines:

We would love your feedback and suggestions on this new resource!  What disciplines should we do next?  How might you use this resource?  Let us know by e-mailing us at outreach@bepress.com.
