Bepress Webinars For Professional Development

Bepress's Digital Commons is a wonderful resource for institutional repositories that help preserve and disseminate faculty scholarship. A shining example of a Digital Commons repository is Duke's Scholarship Repository. Not only is it a great way to organize, preserve, and disseminate faculty scholarship, it also comports with open access initiatives.

"Bepress regularly hosts webinars and live events on a variety of topics related to IR [institutional repository] management, development, and success. Presented by both bepress and Digital Commons community members, these webinars share innovative ideas and best practices for building an IR that is of clear value to the academic, professional, and regional communities it serves."

To find upcoming Bepress webinars, see their events calendar.

I find Bepress to be a great place for a law librarian's professional development. I recently watched the webinar called 'Library Services for the Self-Interested Law School: Enhancing the Visibility of Faculty Scholarship,' and it gave a lot of great ideas for law librarians to assist their faculty with publishing -- from checking citations, to aiding with journal submission, and uploading articles to SSRN.
