article description
Academic libraries of all sizes can and must strategically position themselves to be a campus publisher. A means of doing this is to implement an IR, providing institutions an opportunity to showcase senior theses, and student and faculty peer-reviewed journals. Presentation includes representatives from a small college, a consortium of small colleges, and a university with a university press.
