Scholarly Communications

One of Musselman Library's strategic goals is to "advance scholarship across campus in its established and emerging forms." This includes educating the campus community about open access, digital scholarship, and other emerging methods of scholarship, as well as promoting and supporting open access scholarship on campus. We also oversee Gettysburg College’s open access institutional repository, The Cupola, and provide support for the annual College Authors Reception. The Office of Scholarly Communications can help with:

  • Author rights – understanding contracts, licensing your work, Creative Commons licenses
  • Increasing visibility and impact – copyright permissions, metadata and upload, options to increase access to your unpublished or published work
  • Scholarly publishing: journal publishing in The Cupola, support for multimedia publications
