Nexus: The Canadian Student Journal of Anthropology

We are launching another student journal in Digital Commons - Nexus: The Canadian Student Journal of Anthropology. The first few issues of the journal have been loaded today. The journal goes all the way back to 1980, so it will be a bit before it is all up online. Also of note, this is an open access journal.

Nexus is a graduate student-run publication from the Department of Anthropology, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. For nearly thirty years Nexus has provided a forum for quality student work from Canadian and international colleges and universities.

Nexus attempts to present a cross section of current student work from any area of anthropology, and to advance scholarship through anonymous peer review.

The journal is located at http://digitalcommons.mcmaster.ca/nexus - check 'em out!

New Journal - ESURIO

We have launched another new journal in Digital Commons - ESURIO - which features refereed content by undergraduate and graduate students on the issues of hunger and poverty. They also officially live at esurio.ca, but wanted to be apart of the institutional repository here at Mac. Check 'em out!

IR Update

It has been a while since I have done an IR update. So, the UPDATE: 3 new e-Journals, 2 in the works, and 2 books from the anthropology department have been published to the IR. Also, the big news is we have a Scholarly Communications Librarian now - Barbara McDonald - who will be the spokesperson for the IR. So, now I can concentrate more on the technical side of the project. Also we have launched Selected Works. It is basically a standardized faculty page that allows faculty to manage their work, upload new documents, generate readership reports, and send mailings. Additionally, it integrates with the IR (Digital Commons). So, I can pull from faculty SW sites into the IR. I also nervously gave a presentation at the Learning Technologies Conference this week on Digital Commons. The presentation can be found here.
