Dacus Library would like to introduce you to the Digital Commons @ Winthrop University, an institutional repository that serves as a space to showcase all scholarship Winthrop produces! This scholarship includes, but is not limited to, faculty papers and publications, undergraduate research, theses and newsletters. It will also include archival collections from the Louise Pettus Archives and Special Collections – items that have not been digitally accessible until now. Faculty will be especially interested in the Selected Works feature of Digital Commons which allows you to essentially create an electronic resume of not only your articles and books, but presentations as well. Anyone can access the Digital Commons from a yellow button on the library’s homepage (see below).
Keep in mind that the Digital Commons is just now being launched, so the amount of content currently in the repository will continually grow as collections and works are added. If you wish to keep up with the newest content added to the Digital Commons, you can subscribe to the RSS feed or receive email alerts on content that fits your desired criteria. For more information, see the Email or RSS Notifications page.
Our Digital Systems and Services Librarian, DeAnn Brame, will be providing more details on the Digital Commons this semester. If you have any questions or wish to submit any of your scholarship, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope you enjoy discovering the wealth of knowledge that comes from within the Winthrop University community!
