ScholarWorks was designed to contain Faculty and Student Publications, Student Dissertations, Theses, and Projects, Datasets, and Open Educational Resources. A detailed content scope policy explains what can and what cannot be uploaded.
Faculty, students, and staff across the California State University system can upload their scholarly works. ScholarWorks uses our campus single sign-on.
By default, all content is open access, freely available for the whole world to read, but access permissions for specific items can be restricted to CSU-only, campus-only, or private.
In December 2016, the AS Library Committee voted to approve an ABIERTA Working Group. Technical delays in the rollout of the Samvera repository led to delays in forming this group, and since then the CSU Council of Library Deans has created and staffed a systemwide Digital Repositories Committee to oversee ScholarWorks, making a local administrative group unnecessary. Be that as it may, the Library Committee enthusiastically supported ABIERTA as our local repository brand.
In December 2017, the AS Graduate Education Committee voted to approve the following statement of endorsement, which was later read into the plenary Academic Senate record:
The Graduate Education Committee applauds, endorses and supports the initiative of the University and Pollak Library to build the ABIERTA repository to deposit, preserve, host, and openly disseminate the Master’s Theses, Doctoral Dissertations and Doctoral Nursing Projects authored by the students of California State University, Fullerton. This endorsement is given with the understanding that embargoes by faculty committee chairs and/or student authors will continue to be respected. This endorsement does not entail any cessation of our current arrangements with ProQuest to archive and disseminate these works.
Following this Senate committee approval, hundreds of our student thesis authors have signed ABIERTA deposit agreements through Office of Graduate Studies workflows. The Daily Titan also ran a piece about our local efforts and branding.
