Scholarly Communication Initiative

The MSU Libraries' Scholarly Communication Initiative rolled out in 2015 to support Open Access, Author Rights, Open Education Resources, Copyright, Data Management, and digital preservation with an Institutional Repository.



Welcome to the Mississippi State University Libraries Scholarly Communication Initiative Guide!  We have compiled this guide to share with others how we went from newbies in Summer 2014 to rolling out our Scholarly Communications services to the MSU community in Fall 2015.  We will break down our process into overall steps we took, and then look at the committees that comprised the initiative.  Please take a look at our website and let us know if you have any questions!

Slides from the Mississippi Library Association presentation from October 2015 can be viewed here.
