Abstract

Background: Faculty at Central Washington University (CWU) were not depositing and preserving their research articles in the University Institutional Repository (IR), so an alternative method to identify and include faculty scholarship in the IR was developed. Librarians used the Web of Science to discover articles published by the CWU faculty and then deposited them in the IR.

Analysis: Thousands of articles written by CWU faculty were located and deposited. This project increased interaction with the IR from outside the library and the university beyond any expectations.

Conclusion and implications: This was a successful project, but it required a useful interface to locate the metadata and librarians with highly technical skills.
