Initiative

On this page is information about the Scholarly Communication Initiative here at Arcadia, including local projects, resources, and other items. Although the initiative is only in its beginnings, there are several things already happening. As current projects continue, and new ones are begun, this space will be updated to keep the AU community informed.

ScholarWorks@Arcadia

Arcadia’s institutional digital repository of scholarship from faculty, students and staff. We are currently working on growing this repository with faculty works, as well as faculty-reviewed student works and home-grown scholarly journals.
