Scholarly Communications Newsletter - May 2021
Faculty, as you wrap up the academic year, there’s an easy task that will pay off when you return next fall: updating or creating your SelectedWorks Profile. Chances are you’ve published research, presented at virtual conferences, and accomplished a variety of scholarly activities this year. Perhaps newer faculty or those from Armstrong and Liberty Campuses haven’t created a profile yet. Or maybe it’s been a while since you’ve updated your existing profile. The University Libraries want to promote your work in our institutional repository, Digital Commons@Georgia Southern.
Complete this form to get the process started.
Through our turn-key service, the Digital Commons Team will build or update your SelectedWorks Profile based on your current CV. Benefits include:
Complete this form to send in your CV, or contact us at digitalcommons@georgiasouthern.
Digital Commons@Georgia Southern is getting a fresh look this summer! New visual and functional features will enhance the experience for visitors. The redesign features improved navigation and an updated header, colors, and fonts. The new site will go live before Fall semester starts. We can’t wait to share it with our community!
The University Libraries Have You Covered! In addition to meeting funder and publisher requirements, sharing your data increases the visibility and impact of your research. Within reasonable size limits, the Libraries can host datasets in any discrete file format; plus we'll help you with organizing, describing, and licensing your data!
To get started, see the library's Guide to Curating & Sharing Data on the Data Management Services guide, then contact the Digital Commons Team for help with hosting your data.
