Publishing and Archiving an Open Access Law Review: The Marquette Law Review Experience

Document Type

Digital Commons Webinar

Publication Date



In August 2009, the Marquette Law Review made its 92 years of archives available open access through ePublications@Marquette, the library’s institutional repository. In doing so, the law review gained local control of its archives, created perpetual access, and improved the visibility of its intellectual assets.

Learn from Editor-in-Chief, Marvin Bynum, why the law review was persuaded to make the move, and from librarian Ann Hanlon, how the library used Digital Commons to support the transition.
