Abstract

USFSP Librarians recently curated a digital collection of USFSP faculty and staff research and scholarship regarding civic and community engagement. This project began in Spring 2019 when the USFSP Center for Civic Engagement was re-applying for the Carnegie Community Engagement classification, which is an elective classification an institution can apply for that demonstrates an institution’s engagement with local, regional, national, and international communities. The Center asked the library for assistance with the application. To help, the library created a bibliography of presentations and publications that demonstrate our faculty’s research and scholarship in this area. After creating the bibliography, we decided to take the project a step further and create a digital collection using these works in our institutional repository, Digital USFSP. To create the digital collection, we added specific metadata to the publications. By adding these tags, we were able to connect our faculty members’ works with other works worldwide dealing with civic engagement. Through our institutional repository, we are building on our open access goals to provide this content to our community freely, without paywall restrictions. In this poster session, we would like to share our project and highlight our digital collection of USFSP faculty members’ civic and community engagement research and scholarship.
