WySR – Our New Wyoming Scholars Repository
Wyoming Scholars Repository (WySR) is a University of Wyoming Libraries service dedicated to preserving and providing open access to the scholarly and creative works of the University of Wyoming. WySR provides open access to works produced by University of Wyoming faculty, researchers, and students. The goals of WySR are to increase the visibility of UW’s scholarship, encourage collaboration and innovation, and contribute to the ongoing development of new knowledge.
UW Libraries will work in partnership with university departments, programs, centers, and individual faculty members to select, submit, and manage repository content. Members of the academic community are invited to contribute their completed scholarship for long-term preservation and worldwide electronic accessibility. Archiving content in WySR is free and allowed by many publishers. Faculty and researchers may also choose to create a SelectedWorks homepage to highlight and share their scholarship with colleagues.
Examples of content housed in WySR:
- journal publications (both pre- and post-print)
- conference papers and proceedings
- working papers
- book chapters
- and more
