DigitalCommons@UNO Uploads 1,000th Item

Six months after DigitalCommons@UNO was publicly launched, the repository passed a significant milestone logging its 1,000th document. The document helping DigitalCommons@UNO reach this mark was the December 3, 1962, issue of the Kabul Times published by the Bakhtar News Agency, part of the Arthur Paul Afghanistan Collection.

In January 2013, Criss Library publicly launched DigitalCommons@UNO, the institutional repository of the University of Nebraska at Omaha. The repository is an online, open-access archive that includes a wide variety of faculty and staff publications on topics ranging from educational robotics and ecosystem management to religious references in film and creativity in the workplace.

“UNO’s Digital Commons not only serves as an archive for the University’s intellectual output, but also as a showcase for current scholarly and creative works being produced by the faculty,” said Audrey DeFrank, associate dean of Criss Library. “It is a platform for wide dissemination of the great work of our institution to a global audience.”

The Journal of Religion and Film is the most downloaded collection, followed by the Arthur Paul Afghanistan Collection and Teacher Education Faculty Publications. While the majority of visitors are from the United States, the repository is accessed by researchers across the globe. To date, works in DigitalCommons@UNO have been downloaded approximately 43,500 times by 21,000 researchers.

To explore some of the scholarships at UNO, visit http://digitalcommons.unomaha.edu.

To contribute to DigitalCommons@UNO, authors may send a CV or list of publications to UNODigitalCommons@unomaha.edu.

NBDC Bringing Lean Product Development Workshop to UNO July 26

Nebraska Business Development Center (NBDC) is offering a new workshop aimed at getting products to market faster. This half-day intensive workshop will be held Friday, July 26, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Mammel Hall room 320 A/B and will introduce companies to the process of how to become sustainable.

The goal of the workshop is to focus participants on their companies’ shortcomings in the product development and launch arena, and to demonstrate that methods and tools are available to make rapid and significant improvements in resource utilization, product differentiation, time-to-market, and risk mitigation. All of which will translate directly to their bottom line.

The fee to attend is $299, and up to five employees are included for that price. Individual pricing is not included.

To register, visit the NBDC website at http://nbdc.unomaha.edu.

For more information or if you have questions about this workshop, you can call 402.554.2521 or email unonbdc@unomaha.edu.
