Document Type

Digital Commons Webinar

Publication Date



In 2010, Macalester Library moved the Library Technology Conference from its original website into the repository. The conference committee did this in order to improve the proposal review and publication process. In doing so, they were also able to capture the full lifecycle of the conference scholarship – from call for proposals through to final publication and impact assessment.

Learn from Ron Joslin, Systems Librarian at Macalester, about the benefits and challenges of managing LibTech through the repository.

Hear from Courtney Smith, Outreach and Scholarly Communications at bepress, how conference scholarship can be a distinct hook for faculty and an easy way for the library to support the process of scholarship creation on campus.
