Health Information Outreach Award 74

The use of institutional repositories is becoming more common in health care universities. The Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM) Library has an institutional repository (IR), the DigitalCommons@PCOM. The PCOM Library must ensure that researchers, faculty, and students want to use open access resources and submit articles, posters, and other materials to the DigitalCommons@PCOM by educating them about publication policies, author rights, and open access. Additionally, the project will provide education on finding and evaluating resources that are found online in open access resources and peer-reviewed journals. This outreach to our faculty, students, and researchers will address misconceptions about publishing in IRs. To improve the use of our IR and publication in open access journals, we need to dispel any myths by having experts speak about the issue.
