Not Another Cross-Search Tool: The Digital Commons Network

In November 2012, bepress launched the Digital Commons Network, which brings together scholarship from the hundreds of colleges and universities that use the Digital Commons repository platform. The integration of individual institutional repositories and the emphasis on the browsing experience make this collection of free, full-text, scholarly articles a unique and innovative resource for researchers, authors, students, and libraries. In this webinar, bepress President and CEO Jean-Gabriel Bankier presents a tour of the Digital Commons Network, describes the impetus behind its creation, and presents early evidence of its impact.
