Weaving the Fabric of Research: The KiltHub Repository at CMU
How can one make their research more open? What are the benefits of making your research data and other scholarly outputs publicly available? How can I comply with my funders open access mandates? If I make my work openly available, how can I ensure my work is being viewed, downloaded, and cited? Is my work discoverable in search engines like Google and Google Scholar? What is the KiltHub Repository?
Join us in the Sorrells Library in Wean Hall at CMU on Tuesday, October 24 from 10:00am – 12:00pm or from 2:00pm to 4:00pm for open walk-in assistance in making one’s research data and other scholarly outputs publicly available on the new CMU KiltHub Repository.
Powered by figshare and provided by the University Libraries, KiltHub (https://kilthub.cmu.edu/) is the institutional repository and research collaboration platform for CMU faculty, staff, and students. By collecting, preserving, and providing stable, open access to the research datasets and other scholarly outputs of the CMU community and their collaborators, KiltHub knits together the components of one’s academic work from every stage of the research process, and showcases it on the global scale.
Members of the University Libraries will be on hand to answer questions about KiltHub, as well as assist attendees in making their materials available in the repository. Special prizes and giveaways will be available for those that attend. Attendees can learn more about KiltHub, how it can be used, and what it means to make your research data and other scholarly outputs open access. Food and refreshments will also be provided.
This event is part of Open Access Week programming at the University Libraries.
