Digital Collections at SHSU: Scholarly Works @ SHSU

Information about the Digital Resources Department in the Library

SHSU Digital Library

Scholarly Works @ SHSU is a service that collects, preserves, and distributes academic research and presentation in a digital format. These collections are an important tool for preserving an organization's legacy in that they allow for both preservation of the content and open access to the materials. This digital collection includes faculty research both published and unpublished, papers from the Law Enforcement Management Institute of Texas(LEMIT), and the Electronic Theses and Dissertations of students graduating from SHSU. If you would like to add your work or know of work being done that should be added please contact Susan Elkins.

Policy for Depositing Articles

Policy for Depositing Articles from Ceased Journals

In the event that a faculty author wishes to deposit an article in Scholarly Works @ SHSU where ALL of the following are true:

  • The journal has ceased publication; AND
  • The library has been unable to determine the journal’s past policies regarding author self-archival; AND
  • The library has been unable to identify or communicate successfully with a clear rights-holder for the journal content;

It is the policy of the Newton Gresham Library to permit author deposit of the final published version of the article in Scholarly Works @ SHSU.

If a rights-holder emerges to make a take-down request, the content in question will be removed promptly.
