CSU Libraries presents opportunities to self-archive these works in the Digital Collections of Colorado (DCC) and make them available to the global research community and discoverable via the Internet, leading to increased citations and satisfied mandates for open access. The DCC is a consortium of eight academic libraries including CSU-Fort Collins, CSU-Pueblo, the University of Colorado-Boulder, the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs, University of Colorado-Health Sciences Library, the Auraria Library, Colorado Mesa University, and the Colorado School of Mines. It hosts over 50,000 digital objects produced at CSU, including research data, oral histories, presentations, video, posters, reports, conference proceedings, and photographs. The DCC provides a stable online repository with responsive services to preserve and provide access to digital works. We will introduce services available through the Libraries’ College Liaisons and repository staff, and show faculty members, researchers, and scientific support staff examples for organizing and prioritizing their digital objects for the DCC.
Goals and Target Audience:
