Federal Mandate: Easily comply with the federal agency requirements to make your grant-funded works openly accessible:
- Digital Commons @ Michigan Tech is your reliable and enduring repository. Let the library add the work (papers, data, etc.) and you’re done!
- Our metadata (indexing) and search engine optimization will assuredly increase global awareness of, and access to your work.
- Placing your work on your institution’s repository doesn’t prohibit deposit with Pubmed Central, ResearchGate or your disciplinary repository — but your own institution has a special commitment to access and preservation.
Document Services: When you need an article . . .
- Asking a colleague or using Twitter for an article might be the fastest way to get what you need – but the library will never know your need and take it into consideration when purchasing new subscriptions.
- Using ILLiad, our interlibrary loan system, most articles are delivered to your desktop within 11 hours. And, when placing a request, note the RUSH option and the times of day you can use it. Most RUSH articles are delivered within four hours – weekends included.
- By reviewing (anonymously) which journals are requested most often, we are better able to develop the portfolio of journal subscriptions you need.
- And, your colleagues will thank you!
Digital Measures: Adding your publications with ease
- Find your publications in Web of Science or Scopus or Google Scholar, save them in the Bibtex format, and input directly to Digital Measures.
- For long-term efficiency, consider importing into a file manager such as EndNote so that you can manipulate your references and insert them when using the “Cite While You Write” feature in Microsoft Word. EndNote supports the Bibtex output format, too.
- Join us for an EndNote workshop for faculty on September 22nd which will address EndNote basics and Digital Measures, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org should you have questions.
