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!

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.
