Scholarly Communications Initiatives

Thanks to Sara Kuhn, CFL’s Scholarly Communication Librarian, for the video and short blurb!

Scholarly Communication Librarian, Sara Kuhn, and Digital Initiatives Librarian, Zeineb Yousif, tell us about scholarly communication initiatives happening at the Chester Fritz Library. These initiatives include a suite of online Scholarly Communication Research Guides with resources and information about open access, open educational resources (OERs), researcher profiles and communities, journal quality, research metrics and altmetrics, publishing strategies, data management and author’s rights. Yousif highlights UND’s new institutional repository, the Scholarly Commons, where researchers can deposit theses, raw research data, manuscripts, media, and other research work. Reference librarians also provide a brief overview of the information and tools presented on each research guide in the suite.
