In this workshop, Hillary Webb will give a virtual tour of eCollections at Emily Carr, the university’s institutional repository system, and provide an overview of the kinds of research + creation accepted to the repository, an explanation of the non-exclusive distribution license, and walk-through of the self-submission process and setting up a profile page. Hand-in-hand with setting up a profile page is the process of registering for a personal persistent digital identifier (ORCID). A researcher’s ORCID can be used when submitting their work for publication, submitting grant applications, and in any research workflow to ensure their work gets recognized. After the demonstration, Hillary will be available to assist ECU researchers with setting up a profile page and registering for an ORCID.
Hillary Webb is the Systems + Technical Services Librarian and liaison to the faculty of Culture + Community at Emily Carr University of Art + Design. She has been instrumental in building an open access institutional repository called eCollections at Emily Carr. eCollections features graduate student theses, digitized archival photos and student publications, and visual documentation from the yearly graduation exhibition. The site launched two new collections in late 2019 to feature the research output of the Emily Carr community: ‘Researcher Profiles’ and ‘Research + Creation.’
