UCSF Library’s eScholarship Site

The Library now has a departmental space on eScholarship, UC’s institutional repository. Departmental spaces – also called academic units or research units on eScholarship – are designed to showcase a unit’s scholarly output. All content in eScholarship is openly accessible to anyone, anywhere online, and is discoverable via search engines.

Our space has three series:

  1. Posters
  2. Presentations
  3. Publications

If you’ve presented a poster or talk at a professional meeting, this year or in the past, or have published works, please submit them so that they can be shared with the world! If you’ve already deposited published works in eScholarship, let me know; they can be cross-listed and linked from the Library’s site as well.

To make a submission, you’ll need an eScholarship account. See the Submission Guidelines, then click the “Submit Paper to this Unit” button from http://escholarship.org/uc/ucsflibrary and select the series.

You can either upload your file or link to another freely accessible location for it. Use either the Paper/Article or Book/Chapter form for any file type that contains text, to ensure that it gets OCR’d. Non-textual is for multimedia files. ¬†After you’ve approved your submission, I’ll get pinged to review and release it. See the user guide and video tutorial for additional guidelines.

If you’d like another series added, please let me know. Also, a note that eScholarship will see a complete redesign late this summer, so expect it to look much nicer soon!
