Option 2: Library submission
- Send an email of interest to ScholarSpace Administrators at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Consult with Library staff.
- Provide Library staff necessary information and access to the materials.
- Wait for notification from Library staff with the item URL.
Library staff will add the files and appropriate metadata, and make the item publicly available.
Contributing to ScholarSpace can be a valuable step in your scholarship. To learn more, read What's in It For Me? : Reasons to Submit your Work to ScholarSpace.
Student submission of class projects to ScholarSpace must be sanctioned by an academic department or program of the University of Hawaii. Some schools or programs expect students to submit their work directly to ScholarSpace; others expect students to work with the ScholarSpace Administrators.
If you would like to submit material to an existing student collection, please contact the appropriate faculty member, or the administrative office of the school or program for information about requirements, style guidelines and the approval process.
Creation of new student collections requires departmental approval and either a faculty liaison or departmental administrative support person. If you would like to add a new student collection to ScholarSpace, you will need to speak with faculty in the appropriate department or program about their interest in starting such a collection. Interested faculty should then contact ScholarSpace Administrators.
