‘bepress’ — the next Scholar’s Mine platform — train up April 9

Given increasing requirements for data and publication, Missouri S&T Scholars’ Mine has become a rapidly growing online repository of digital materials representing Missouri S&T’s scholarly and creative output. As a service of the library this enables faculty to preserve their work and disseminate it to a worldwide audience.  This spring Missouri S&T, through the research support arm of the Curtis Laws Wilson Library,  is hosting Scholars’ Mine in Digital Commons and SelectedWorks by bepress (Berkeley Electronic Press).
