Establshing a Scholars' Bank Community
Establishing a Community or Collection
in Scholars' Bank
The preferred location for work is within a department or other academic unit or group's Scholar's Bank Community. If the department doesn't already have a community, one may be quickly and easily established in consultation with the Scholar's Bank Coordinator.
Faculty also have the option to set up personal collections within the Faculty Research community.
Students or graduate students may submit to established collections, such as the Graduate School's Theses and Dissertations collection. Click here for a list of already-established student collections within Scholars' Bank.
Each collection within a community may have distinct guidelines or standards. Access to communities or collections may be open or restricted, according to the community's needs. Issues to consider include:
- what sorts of items are appropriate to a particular collection
- what electronic formats are acceptable in a particular collection
- who may add items
- who may view items in the collection
Groups wishing to establish a community within Scholar's Bank or students who are not members of already-established communities should consult with the Scholars' Bank Coordinator.
