SFU Library Summit & Archives and the Preservation of Faculty Papers

May 07, 2013

12 noon, Room 114, Halpern Centre.   Paul Hebbard of SFU Archives and Don Taylor of the Library, who established the Library's electronic archives (called Summit),  will give a joint presentation about how both the Archives and Summit can help with the preservation of faculty papers and research, and will describe the difference between the two services.

Paul Hebbard's title and abstract:

Donating your records to the University Archives: An overview.

My talk will focus on the criteria the Archives uses to determine whether or not to acquire the records of a faculty member; the types of records we want to acquire; and the practical steps involved in negotiating a donation. The talk will be of interest to anyone wanting to donate their "papers" to the University Archives.

Don Taylor's title and abstract;

My Faculty Papers. Will the Library put them online for me?
This talk will discuss Summit, the SFU digital research repository, and the types of materials that would be suitable to deposit in Summit in order to make more prominent the research/scholarly works that accumulate over the working career of a SFU faculty member.  It will be of interest to anyone looking to make their scholarly works more widely accessible.
