Reports and White Papers (Libraries)

DSpace/Manakin Repository

Reports and White Papers (Libraries)


This collection began in 2005 as an optional place to make available internal project and planning reports and issue papers written primarily for an internal audience. In 2008 the library's newly formed Research and Innovative Services Department began producing investigative reports on behalf of the library and in 2010, took on editorial responsibility for this collection in the hopes of promoting access to all internal research reports conducted in the library. We find there is an interest in this type of reporting by other library professionals (outside OSU) as well. Depositing in this collection is a service to the profession as well as a means of internal communication.

Ideally when a research project is completed, the full final report is provided, however, where there are outstanding IRB considerations which need to be addressed, reports may be redacted or summarized with contact information for more information.

Faculty and staff at OSU Libraries consider "Open Access" to their research and scholarship a priority. In addition to this collection you will find "Presentations and Posters (OSU Libraries)" and "Papers, Articles, and Conference Proceedings (OSU Libraries)" as separate collections.

If you are aware of a research project undertaken at OSU Libraries but do not find it represented in one of these collections, please contact the investigator/author using the staff directory and request that information about it be deposited.

Oversight of this collection is assigned to the Library Faculty Association "ScholarsArchive Coordinator." The FY 2013-2014 coordinator is Natalia Fernández natalia.fernandez[at]oregonstate.edu
