Automating Workflow: From a Trickle to a Stream


This presentation from the Digital Commons + Great Lakes User Group Annual Meeting highlights Cleveland State University’s efforts to support subject specialist librarians with their IR work. Since its implementation of Digital Commons in March 2012, the CSU Michael Schwartz Library has created a flexible workflow, automated processes, and created a research guide for librarians and faculty. Supplemental materials include: a workflow (with customization notes), a custom citation macro (with instructions), and a Google Apps Script for batch loading using Google Drive (with instructions).
