Institutional Repositories at UMass Lowell: A National Model for Academic Libraries

Open Repository

The Library will implement The University’s ongoing project to obtain digital copies of all faculty articles, presentations and posters, to ensure that all documents are uploaded to the university’s second Institutional Repository—its open access, online, full-text database of faculty work residing on the open source LibGuides platform.



UMass Lowell Faculty Open Access Publications

The Library will link full-text documents to faculty citations residing in the Digital Measures data warehouse, extending the value and use of that repository.
Student workers and faculty will be trained on the publishers’ requirements as outlined in the Sherpa-Romeo directory. Direction and quality assurance as materials are uploaded to the Repository is carried out by the Senior Digital Documentation Specialist.
