Project poster

The UW Libraries Open Scholarship Commons (OSC) plans to expand its services to better support members of the academic community performing public and community-engaged research and scholarship. To inform the future development of the OSC, this project investigated the current state of public and community-engaged scholarship at the UW and beyond through a literature review, environmental scan, and interviews. Findings from this project will inform how the OSC develops its virtual and physical presence, the services and resources it offers, and how it fits into the University's broader efforts to support work with and for the community and public.
