About the Digital Repository

What IS the Digital Repository?  The DR is ISU's stable platform for showcasing research that is completed at ISU. We are building a strong undergraduate research component in the DR, and your ISCORE research belongs there!  

ISCORE has its own site within the DR. Here we are collecting the presentations that are given at the conference.  For you to participate, you will need to sign a release form that says you DO want your presentation to be included in the DR, and you will need to send your presentation to DR staff after ISCORE.  That's it!

Why should you participate?  Participating in the DR is a great way to showcase your scholarly research. The DR is expertly managed and curated by ISU Library staff on behalf of the entire university. The DR is also open access and free to the world, which means that the research there is eminently findable with Google and Google Scholar. Everyone can benefit from your research findings.  You can also point to your research on your resume, and continue building your research profile with other scholarly presentations and even papers you publish.

More info and the release form will be shared with you in your class.  Please do feel free to contact Susan VG also if you have questions about your presentation and participating in the DR.
