I’d like to share a recent example of how an IU faculty member used IUScholarWorks to share research materials from a 30-year, NIH-funded research project online. Take a look at the Learnability Project archive. These collections, created by Judith A. Gierut, Professor Emerita of Speech and Hearing and founder of the Learnability Project, include working papers, data sets, and journal articles from 1980-2015. Professor Gierut worked closely with IUScholarWorks staff to address issues of metadata, digital preservation, and copyright before depositing her materials. Now that the project is archived in IUScholarWorks, future scholars will be able to access to this important research, and Professor Gierut can rest assured that her life’s work will be preserved for years to come. For more information, read our news item on the Libraries’ website.
