Journals Now Part of ScholarsArchive

19 faculty and student produced journals are now part of ScholarsArchive! The newly redesigned ScholarsArchvie webpage includes a section just for journals. Look at the changes and additions here.

More Changes Coming to Webpage

We recently updated our webpage theme, which improved the navigation between college and department pages. Now get ready for content changes! Soon you’ll see a new, simple welcome page with links to “Research” and “Journals”.

Clicking on “Research” will take you to what has been the main ScholarsArchive gateway. This is where you’ll go to see the research and creative content by BYU faculty and students, arranged by college and department.

“Journals” will take you to BYU student and faculty produced journals. As is the rest of ScholarsArchive, these journals are free and open to the public. We hope you’ll enjoy discovering more of what BYU has to offer!

New Webpage Theme

As you’ve probably noticed, the ScholarsArchive webpage looks a little different with an updated theme. We love it and hope you do, too! The best part is the more intuitive navigation between the college and department pages. Take a look around and tell us what you think!

ScholarsArchive Pages

The colleges and departments with items in ScholarsArchive each have a page with a photo and some text. Some colleges and departments use the text area to describe what’s in their ScholarsArchive collection and others have their unit’s mission statement. If you would like to update what’s on your page, let us know!  Email us at scholarsarchive@byu.edu.

Historical Clothing Collection

Last week Mary Farahnakian presented the Alice Louise Reynolds Women-in-Scholarship lecture in the Harold B. Lee Library. Her lecture titled, “Let Your Star Shine,” chronicled the life of the historical clothing collection, thus far. It was fascinating to learn about what it takes to care for and document each clothing item. It truly is a labor of love! We’re fortunate to have photos of the collection right here in ScholarsArchive.

 

ETDs Added

Our student publications include the electronic theses and dissertations submitted by BYU graduate students. We’ve recently had a rush on processing ETDs and 212 have just been added to ScholarsArchive! Take a look at the variety of research topics being studied by browsing the ETD collection here.

Religious Education Collection Grows

Several professors from Religious Education have recently sent their list of publications to scholarsarchive@byu.edu. We’ve reviewed the lists and added over forty publications to ScholarsArchive!  You can browse this uplifting collection here.

Join ScholarsArchive This Year!

As you contemplate your professional goals this year, please consider joining ScholarsArchive. We currently have over 200 faculty members with contributions in the collection and we’d love to have more! Also, if your department isn’t represented please contact us and we can get started on adding a page for you and your colleagues. We have a little more than half the departments represented and our goal is to have every department included in ScholarsArchive.

Student Publications Collection Grows

This semester we’ve seen some excellent student work added to ScholarsArchive. Topics range from early American bookbinding to the pattern of vowel leveling in Byzantine era manuscripts. And even more great student work from English 382 – Shakespeare is on it’s way!

Physics & Astronomy Research Added

Over three dozen articles on the topics of physics and astronomy have recently been added to ScholarsArchive. Check out the collection today!

As always, you are welcome to send your vita to scholarsarchive@byu.edu. We’ll review your publications and let you know which we can add to ScholarsArchive.
