It's now easier than ever for you and your students to conduct scholarly research and get library support. 

  • We used student feedback to improve our user experience
  • We made a concerted effort to prioritize scholarly resources, research & citation help, and popular links.
  • We created new tutorials to walk your students through the research process at their point of need.

Providing top-quality digital publishing for 3,000+ Marshall University-affiliated articles

As an institutional repository that brings together all of MU's research under one umbrella, the MDS team's goals are publishing, distributing, and preserving your scholarly work. If you want to increase the visibility of your professional research, they can: 

  • Publish your working papers, completed articles, or conference papers, as well as dissertations, M.A. portfolios/theses, and video presentations. 
  • Reduce permission and price barriers by being open access, allowing you to reach as many readers as possible.
  • Compile and send readership reports. MDS tracks downloads and emails you a monthly report detailing your readership dates and locations, providing you with proof of your scholarly impact and article-level metrics for renewal documents and annual reports.
