ERAU Scholarly Commons Report, May 30, 2013-June 20, 2014


ERAU Scholarly Commons, the institutional repository of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU), debuted to little fanfare but great hope on May 30, 2013. The implementation team had worked for five months with bepress, the vendor, to construct a home page that reflects the unique aerospace concentration of the university. From the outset, Scholarly Commons has proven to be an important university resource for faculty and student research as well as for the creation of new journals and the home of conferences and events. As the first year came to an end, faculty support continued to grow as did the requests for new journals and events.


This ERAU Scholarly Commons report was compiled by Anne Marie Casey and Chip Wolfe with assistance from Denise Bollenback, Jane Deighan, and Suzanne Sprague.
