Purpose: Promote library services at other departments, document helpful tips and services that staff can share with patrons.





If you hear of a faculty member who is interested in digitizing his/her life’s work? Mention they can visit with archivists at WRC or get help with technical aspects of their project with the Media specialists at the DMC. If the material is open access or can be granted CC-attribution status by the author, we can also publish papers in the IR for easy accessibility and preservation.


Does the faculty have a website and wants to preserve it? Contact Amanda Focke to make sure the site is covered under the Archive-It web archiving solution managed by Fondren Library



Woodson Research Center

Not all faculty or scholars on campus are aware that University Archives exist and are very interested in collecting data (both physical and born digital) on the academic careers of Rice faculty. Themes may include course work, research or Rice University Committee work.

Other services include:

  • 1 hour research service

  • May provide Hi-resolutions of images from the digital archives upon demand. Permission to publish is preferred but only requires attribution (acknowledgement of where the images came from)


Images for teaching and scholarship

If you hear of faculty searching for images for teaching purposes, please feel free to send them to Kelley Vernon (x. Will provide research services using ARTstor’s digital library (over hundreds of thousands) and will help make images available for class.

Services for Faculty and Instructors


Open Access/Scholarly  Communications

Contact Shannon if faculty/staff/students are looking for a place to deposit copies of journal articles, book [chapters], white papers, posters, etc. We can add items to existing IR communities/collections, or create new ones. The Rice Open Access Policy requires faculty to place copies of all peer reviewed journal articles (published since April 2012) in the IR.

Shannon also works with faculty to ensure compliance with federal open access requirements, and can assist with federal systems like the NIH NIHMS/PubMed systems.


Other tips


Oversized scanning services

Or scanning requests for personal or non-university drawings

Que imaging

A&E for architectural drawing scanning. Can pick up and drop off originals (often the same day). Archival or just “photo-copy” quality. For more info: http://thomasrepro.com/printing-services/other-document-services/document-archiving


Binding services

online service such as blurb.com : can upload the pdf and make choices about how the cover should look like, and what kind of binding (hard or soft). The choices offered there are nice, inexpensive, quick and they do a good job.

For a customized handmade keepsake version, which would be more expensive but meets the goal of a "fancy" keepsake, a small bindery such as CloverLeaf Studio in Austin could be contacted. http://www.cloverleafstudio.com/
