The Library is pleased to share the new PDXScholar. PDXScholar, the University's institutional repository managed by the Library, provides a collection of services designed to capture and showcase the scholarly output of the Portland State University community.
"Our new system gives us a better platform for scholarship produced by schools, departments, centers, and programs at Portland State, and for making student scholarship available," says Karen Bjork, Digital Initiatives Coordinator at the Library. "By posting scholarship in this repository, we’re making faculty and student work easily discoverable through general Internet searching tools and more accessible to a broad range of scholars, to the general public, and to an international community."
Our new repository platform is powered by Digital Commons, a system created by the Berkeley Electronic Press. PDXScholar cross-indexes other Digital Commons repositories around the world and allows faculty to create personalized web pages to store, manage, and highlight scholarship using the SelectedWorks tool.
PDXScholar provides a consistent, long-term home for work created at Portland State University. Contributors can be assured that their documents will be preserved and available in perpetuity, which is helpful when linking to work from resumés, websites, and portfolios. PDXScholar also maximizes research impact, facilitates interdisciplinary research, and expands the reach of Portland State University scholarship to researchers worldwide. It contains a full range of scholarship including journal articles, technical reports, conference papers, theses and dissertations written in fulfillment of degrees at Portland State University, creative works and books.
