Making Undergraduate Research Open Access in the Institutional Repository: Challenges and Benefits

Document Type

Conference Proceeding

Publication Date



Publication of undergraduate research in an institutional repository can provide multiple benefits to students, but there are also a number of additional challenges with which repository managers are faced-- permission forms, parsing roles in student-faculty collaborations, and concerns over the sharing of data from as-yet-unpublished research, to name but a few. In this roundtable discussion, we hope to share our, at times, hard won lessons and benefit from the collective knowledge of our fellow librarians.


Discussion Roundtable presented as part of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) National Conference 2017. March 23, 2017.
