Digital Collections of Scholarly Work by F&M faculty, students, and professional staff


Why should I add my scholarly and creative work to College Scholarship?


Adding your works to F&M's open access institutional repository provides the following benefits:

  • Discoverability: since College Scholarship is search engine optimized and crawled by Google, your works will be easy to find on the web.
  • Permanence: College Scholarship is maintained by Archives & Special Collections, so your works will always be available
  • Sharing: every work in College Scholarship is assigned a permalink which can be added to websites and CVs to share your work
  • Analytics: starting in 2021, authors will receive readership reports telling them how many times their works have been accessed, downloaded, and from where.
  • Accessibility: because College Scholarship is an open access repository, your work will be freely available to students and researchers around the world, no login or account creation required.
  • Preprints and postprints: if permitted by your publication contract, you can add preprints (pre-peer review) and postprints (post-peer review) to College Scholarship so that those unable to read the version of record can still access the content of your work.
