The Library at the University of Hawaii is championing ScholarSpace, an on-line service for storing all sorts of information (e.g., articles, dissertations, publications, slide shows, images, digital collections and audio and video clips) on a long term basis! It’s an easy-to-use web-based system that gives users a permanent home for their data without technical worries. The discussants will describe how to set up a ScholarSpace institutional repository here at the University of Hawaii, the technical ins-and-outs of workflow and meta-data and the Open Access movement behind free, immediate, permanent, full-text, online access to academic material. The discussants will use as a case study setting up a ScholarSpace digital collection for Explorations, a UH graduate student journal on Southeast Asian Studies.
