In October of 2013, Clemson University launched its TigerPrints institutional repository. This IR is a key component in a suite of services designed to capture the scholarly output of the University and make it openly available to the world while supporting the online and open access publication of unique Clemson scholarship. This presentation will explore the fundamentals of institutional repositories, and the ways that they can be used as tools to educate researchers on copyright, author’s rights, and the benefits of openly sharing their research.
