ScholarWorks@Arcadia is an open-access, digital repository containing work produced by students, faculty, and contributing departments of the Arcadia community.
The Bette E. Landman Library initiated this project to encourage the publication and dissemination of Arcadia University’s scholarly and creative work and to highlight the work of Arcadia students. The digital repository is part of the Library’s larger efforts to meet an emerging demand for digital content and to provide students and faculty members resources that facilitate scholarly production, collaboration, and creativity.
ScholarWorks@Arcadia collects, catalogs, and makes available digital material so that it can be accessed both from within MyArcadia and via the Web through common search engines. In this way, material in the repository could be discovered by individuals conducting online research, providing benefits to both the creator of the work and Arcadia University as the work’s sponsor.
How To Use the Repository
Those using the digital repository can:
- View examples of exemplary student work, such as Senior Capstone Projects, for use in the classroom.
- Browse the work of a single department in order to explore its scholarly or creative works.
- Search for and cite these works like any other book, journal article, or reference material.
Who Can Participate
ScholarWorks@Arcadia is administered by Eric Jeitner, digital resources and instruction librarian, in conjunction with a faculty advisory board that oversees submission standards. Both students and faculty are encouraged to place their work within the repository; however, student work must be nominated for inclusion by the student’s department.
