DLA has evolved from Digital Research and Scholarship Services into Scholarly Communications, following the strategic reorganization of University Libraries. Scholarly Communications manages content-based digital services such as publishing and event capture and VTechWorks, the institutional repository.
The Publishing Team manages operations for journal and conference publications. We support workflow from author submissions and peer review to article, journal, and conference proceedings publication. We are open to supporting other publishing modes of interest to the university community. Contact Gail McMillan.
VTechWorks, is Virginia Tech's institutional repository, created and managed by the library. VTechWorks collects and archives the intellectual works of faculty and students. Learn more from Nathan Hall, the VTechWorks Librarian.
To fulfill our commitment to long-term access, Scholarly Communications has a distributed digital preservation strategy, in place since 2004. With the MetaArchive Cooperative, we participate in geographically dispersed secure dark (i.e., inaccessible) archiving.
To take advantage of our services and resources, contact Gail McMillan, Director, Scholarly Communications.
