Abstract

As undergraduate and graduate students at academic institutions participate more in the scholarly research and communication process, there is an increasing need to provide students with the tools and opportunities to publish professional work. However, supporting student-created publications can often seem like an uphill battle, with frequent turnover, inconsistent and intermittent activity, and an endless slew of questions ranging from digitizing back issues, developing sustainable publishing practices, and “what do you mean, we need author agreements?” At Georgetown University, the Library and the University Press are collaborating to bring complementary expertise and services from both organizations to student publishers. In this presentation, we discuss our approach to outreach and support, the services offered to student publications, and explore new opportunities for diverse campus groups to come together to support digital scholarly publications.
