The McMaster "Digital Commons" institutional repository http://digitalcommons.mcmaster.ca/about.html seeks to preserve and share the intellectual work of our community. Institutional repositories expand access to research, reassert academic control over scholarship, reduce the monopoly power of journal publishers, and increase institutional visibility, status and public value (SPARC, 2002). They provide a disaggregated, distributed model for the dissemination and preservation of scholarly research. This presentation will introduce you to the benefits of contributing your work to McMaster’s institutional repository. Learn how Digital Commons makes your publications easily found by search engines such as Google and how the Library can host your scholarly open access e‐journal.
