Lewis Library launches UNTHSC Scholarly Repository
Each year UNTHSC faculty, staff and students produce thousands of scholarly documents—everything from journal articles to theses to PowerPoint presentations. With the new UNTHSC Scholarly Repository, the Gibson D. Lewis Health Science Library is organizing and preserving those documents, and making them accessible to the academic community and the world.

The repository can hold a range of digital material including Grand Rounds presentations, theses and dissertations, lectures, conference papers, published and unpublished articles, manuscripts, poster presentations, data sets, photographs, audio and video files, and more.

Entries in the repository are given permanent URLs, or Web addresses, and indexed by the Google and Google Scholar search engines so they can be found using basic Internet searches or by searching the repository. Owners of deposited works retain full copyright and can sign up to receive monthly reports on how often their material is downloaded and viewed.

The initial UNTHSC student theses and dissertations housed electronically in the repository begin with Fall 2008 graduates of the School of Public Health.

The UNTHSC Scholarly Repository is an effort of the Lewis Library’s Digital Projects Department. Jamie Furrh, digital projects librarian, says the aim of the repository is to preserve UNTHSC scholarship, and to help faculty and students achieve wider circulation to gain recognition for their work.
