Law Scholarship Impact and Visibility

The Law Library Faculty Scholarship Collection

The Law Library maintains the Law School's Scholarship Repository, including the Faculty Scholarship Collection, which preserves scholarship created by our faculty while affiliated with the law school.  The Faculty Scholarship Collection serves two primary purposes: First, preserving faculty scholarship in digital format for posterity, and second: increasing the visibility and accessibility of that scholarship.  To achieve these goals, the Library maintains a repository on Digital Commons, which is a stable long-term storage host designed specifically for scholarship.  Digital Commons has excellent integration with search engines like Google, which means that scholarship included in the repository is easier for readers to find.

If you would like more information about including your scholarship in the repository, please contact Vicente Garces (
