Event Title

When They Won't Submit: Leveraging Faculty Relationships to Increase IR Submissions

Location

Thad Cochran Center 218

Presentation Type

Short Concurrent Session

Start Date

26-4-2019 2:30 PM

Description

Given the failure of the ‘build it and authors will submit’ model to increase holdings in an institutional repository (IR), many IR staff have been forced to consider other methods to obtain submissions. In this session, librarians from Sam Houston State University will expose how they leveraged librarian relationships with faculty to encourage participation, via submission of articles and other scholarly material, in the IR. Through the combination of a targeted personal approach, facilitated by subject liaison librarians, and mediated submission, by the IR librarian, the breadth and depth of the IR, ScholarlyWorks@SHSU, is incrementally increasing. Participants will have the opportunity to engage with a partner to discuss how this method might work at their institution and what limitations, if any, would need to be considered.
