About the Libraries
Scholarly Communication

"Scholarly communication" describes both the dissemination of and access to scholarship and research in a variety of formats and states of completion, such as published books or journal articles, research results and data sets, and drafts of papers. The issues of copyright and intellectual property affect the ability of academic institutions to provide access to research results and instructional materials.
