The SFU Library is pleased to announce the establishment of a Scholarly Digitization Fund in 2010/11 from Endowment income. The Fund will cover costs associated with digitizing scholarly materials. Digitization work will include scanning, creation of descriptive information, and other processing in preparation for deposit in the Library’s Institutional Repository or other publicly accessible repository operated and maintained by the SFU Library. Up to $5,000 per project will be awarded in one budget year.
The goal of the fund is to expose SFU research and scholarship to the University and broader community. The outcome will be greater visibility and knowledge transfer of SFU scholarship and research output, in keeping with the mission of the University, the goals in the SFU Strategic Research Plan, and the principles in the Library’s Open Access Strategy. The Library will commit to providing permanent, persistent access to these digitized resources.
Proposals will be accepted from SFU departments, Centres, Institutes, or other campus units, or from individual faculty or staff.
Please contact Donald Taylor, Assistant Head, Access Services, email@example.com. Inquiries are also welcome.
