Students as Scholars: Strategies for Adding Undergraduate- and Graduate-Level Work to Your Institutional Repository
How can we help students embrace their role as researchers, and encourage them to add their voice to larger scholarly conversations? Over the past couple of years, the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University Institutional Repository Committee has increasingly focused on highlighting student work in our repository (DigitalCommons@CSB/SJU). In this session, we will highlight the benefits – for individual students, your institution, and outside researchers – of making student work accessible online. We’ll outline some of the successes and drawbacks we have experienced in our efforts at CSB/SJU, and some of the questions we’ve addressed: What student work, in particular, should we target for inclusion? With whom should we partner? How can we raise awareness of the IR among students and faculty? Is there a way to involve students in the publication process itself? We’ll welcome discussion at the end so we can learn from session participants’ experiences as well.
