Open Access at Virginia Tech

DLA has evolved from Digital Research and Scholarship Services into Scholarly Communication, following the strategic reorganization of University Libraries. Scholarly Communication manages content-based digital services such as publishing and event capture and VTechWorks, the institutional repository.

Library Publishing currently manages operations for producing 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, including Open Educational Resources. (OER are publically available, openly licensed, free and often online instructional materials that are relevant for use in teaching and learning.) Contact Gail McMillan about library publishing and Anita Walz about OER.

For additional OER resources, please see the OER finding guide as well as Open Education Week, which will take place February 23 — 27.

Event Capture provides video recording and live streaming services for scholarly events and makes them available through VTechWorks. Contact Therese Walters to schedule a recording.

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 of Scholarly Communication.
