As faculty conduct more and more of their work online, they have an expanding set of needs for platforms and digital expertise from the library. While previously published faculty articles are often core repository items, Digital Commons has the potential to support a wide spectrum of faculty work—from datasets, to multimedia, to teaching tools, and much more.

The materials collected here can help you reach out to faculty members, learn more about their needs, and partner with other library staff to demonstrate the benefits and potential of the institutional repository in supporting their work. The Faculty Needs Digital Survey is another tool that is available to help libraries spark conversations with their faculty members about the work that they are producing. If you are interested in learning more about the survey, contact outreach@bepress.com.
