The Albin O. Kuhn Library & Gallery is pleased to announce the implementation of ScholarWorks@UMBC, a system for collecting UMBC research and creative work outputs in one place to showcase what UMBC does. Academic departments and faculty have their own pages displaying a list of all full-text works included. Faculty sponsored student work exemplifying teaching and learning can also be included. Depositing research in ScholarWorks@UMBC extends dissemination of your work more widely than high-priced journals, making it available for free worldwide, increasing impact and potential citations. All content included in ScholarWorks@UMBC is issued a permanent URL and indexed by Google Scholar. ScholarWorks@UMBC will soon also include automated social media mentions to help promote your work. ScholarWorks@UMBC is part of the Maryland Share Open Access Repository (MDSOAR), a system shared by 13 Maryland colleges and universities.
Librarian Michelle Flinchbaugh (firstname.lastname@example.org, x56754) is available to demo the system for departments and individual faculty and assist them in getting started. The Library has made available a guide to submitting works to ScholarWorks@UMBC with information on submissions. For help with ScholarWorks@UMBC within one business day, email email@example.com
