Congratulations to the Graduating Seniors of the Honors Program!

Honors Class 2016

The staff at McQuade Library is extremely proud to feature Honors Capstone projects in a new Honors Program collection in Merrimack ScholarWorks! This year’s capstone projects range from a look into the history of medicine in the Islamic Golden Age, a manual for adding sweatshop-free and fair trade items to the college bookstore, an assessment of the obstacles to tax reform, and even more exceptional projects!

Faculty members- if any of your students created exemplary work this semester, we would love to show it off! Contact Michaela Keating for more information about including student work in Merrimack ScholarWorks.

Works Uploaded to Digital Commons are Having a Big Impact!

In the past year, two works uploaded to the Digital Commons network (the same network that hosts Merrimack ScholarWorks) saw a significant increase in downloads after they were cited in articles by major publishers.

A student senior thesis from Claremont McKeanna College’s institutional repository (Scholarship@Claremont) received over 80,000 downloads after the thesis was cited and linked in a November 2014 Elle article.  In December 2015, Fordham Law Review (hosted by The Fordham Law Archive of Scholarship and History repository) became one of the most downloaded publications in the Digital Commons network after a 2004 article was cited and linked in an October 2015 Huffington Post article. The same article was cited previously in a 2013 Salon article, and has since received over 50,000 downloads.

Merrimack ScholarWorks uses the same tools as Scholarship@Claremont and the Fordham Law Review to make your work discoverable through search engines like Google. If you are interested in finding ways to increase readership of your work contact Michaela Keating.
