In 2012, the Oregon State University (OSU) Libraries Center for Digital Scholarship and Services utilized existing staff and librarian positions to energize OSU’s efforts at building a strong open access collection of scholarly articles by OSU authors. Members of the team begin tracking, requesting, and archiving articles published from 2012 forward. Relying heavily on Web of Science for its RSS feed service, the project started with a backlog of 1307 article records, and has reached over 4700 as of June 2014. On a weekly basis, a library staff member contacts OSU authors identified in the feed and whose accepted manuscripts are eligible for deposit. The majority of the work is accomplished by two staff members, with a librarian acting in a consultative role. Nearly half (47%) of the articles identified in the RSS feed have been deposited in ScholarsArchive, OSU’s institutional repository (IR).

This poster will present the Center’s complex and evolving workflow for the ongoing project including: changes made in response to the successful passage in June 2013 of the OSU Open Access Policy; shifts in responsibilities between librarians and staff members; the data used for assessment of the project; tools utilized; and challenges and opportunities encountered along the way.Attendees of this poster session will gain insight into one university’s approach to increasing author participation in the IR and thereby developing a substantial collection of faculty authored papers. Additionally, viewers will come away with an understanding of individual steps that may be helpful in developing new workflows at other institutions.
