The Eunice & James L. West Library has a new database that stands apart from other academic databases in its collection: the Academic Archive.
The Academic Archive is Texas Wesleyan’s institutional repository, which means it will hold only the intellectual work of the faculty, students and staff of our university. This database will provide a way to showcase the excellent work created by Texas Wesleyan University to the world-wide research community.
Our Academic Archive will hold any type of file — text, image, audio and video. No matter what the intellectual output (article, art pieces, performances, presentations, etc.), the Academic Archive can permanently host that work online. Faculty, students and staff have many benefits from submitting their work to the Academic Archive, such as increasing their impact in their fields, and making available intellectual work that might not otherwise be published.
There will be an information session about the Academic Archive on Apr. 15 at 12:15 p.m. in the Orientation Room of the West Library. If you have questions about how to submit your work, concerns about copyright or want to know more about open access, please come and be part of the conversation!
Contact Lizz Bridges with any questions about the Academic Archive.
