Digital Commons Resource Library

This collection is designed to save you time when creating materials — collateral, presentations, reports — and offer you best practices on managing institutional repositories in the evolving landscape of scholarly communications. Many of these resources are authored by your peers in the Digital Commons community, ranging from webinars on managing electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs) to a “copyright roadshow” for faculty to libguides on open educational resources (OERs). There are also materials created by bepress, including four-minute videos on usage reports and dashboard tools, as well as user guides and blog posts. Some categories have nested themes — for example, Managing Your Repository includes resource sections on Reporting, Staffing, and Marketing.
