C205 – Re-Creating Success With DigitalCommons

Tuesday, April 8, 2014
4:00 PM – 4:45 PM
, Digital Projects Coordinator, Hospitality, Labor, and Management Library, Cornell University

The consolidation that created Cornell University’s Hospitality, Labor, and Management Library (HLM) led to new opportunities and challenges for the HLM Digital Projects Group, none larger than recreating the success of DigitalCommons@ILR, the ILR School’s digital repository, in support of the School of Hotel Administration. The cultures, subject matter, and audiences differed greatly enough between the schools that simply expanding the first repository was not an option; and the success of DigitalCommons@ILR—18,000 documents, 7 million full-text downloads, 66% faculty participation—made for some very high expectations. DelRosso talks about the creation of the Scholarly Commons and the lessons learned not only about digital repositories, but also about using digital projects to enhance outreach to new communities.
