An Institutional Repository (IR) is what? University-based IRs support dissemination & management of materials by the institution and its members. IR materials are indexed to be highly discoverable by search engines, so University branding is heavily incorporated.
Why an Open Access IR for Murray State? Open Access (OA) literature is online digital content, freely available and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions (author credit is still required). Our OA IR affords Murray State authors with an opportunity to share an array of original content to a global audience with no access barriers outside Internet connectivity.
Does this require a lot of my time? Nope. If a student or teacher has content they are proud to have created while at Murray State, and is the copyright holder, contact your subject librarian (my who?) or firstname.lastname@example.org for help with custom pages, digitization, or authors rights.
