Bible Survey - BIBL 100: Institutional Repositories, aka, IRs

What's An IR?

An institutional repository is an online location for collecting, preserving, and disseminating - in digital form - the intellectual output of an institution like GFU.

The four main objectives for having an institutional repository are:

  1. to provide open access to institutional research output by self-archiving it;
  2. to create global visibility for an institution's scholarly research;
  3. to collect content in a single location;
  4. to store and preserve other institutional digital assets, including unpublished or otherwise easily lost ("grey") literature such as theses or technical reports.

You will find our Institutional Repository (IR) at digitalcommons@georgefox.edu.

In our IR you'll find really useful stuff, such as, theses and dissertations: Doctor of Ministry, Dotor of Education, Doctor of Psychology, Master of Arts in Theological Studies, etc.

Some of this could be a help in your project for this class.

Mess around with it and see for yourself what it's about.
