Institutional Repositories and Scholarly Publishing Platforms for Liberal Arts Colleges

A growing number of liberal arts college libraries, including the Claremont Colleges, Wesleyan University, and Colby College, are managing their own institutional repositories (IRs) to preserve and showcase the intellectual output of their institutions.

Topics include:

  • Collecting and managing student works: Graduate work, undergraduate major papers and research projects
  • Showcasing faculty scholarship: Publications, presentations, research and reports
  • Campus based publishing: Peer-reviewed scholarly journals by faculty and students
  • Managing the content of events, conferences, workshops, and lecture series
