The Office of Instructional Consulting is pleased to host a presentation of IUScholarWorks. Julie Bobay, Librarian and Director for Scholarly Communication Initiatives, will be on hand to introduce and demonstrate IUScholarWorks.

IUScholarWorks is a set of services from the IU Libraries and Digital Library Program to make the work of IU scholars freely available, while ensuring that these resources are preserved and organized for the future. After testing on the Bloomington campus, the service will be offered to other IU campuses who are interested in participating.
