Jan Ryan Novak and Leslie A. Pardo (Cleveland State University - Cleveland-Marshall College of Law and Arizona State University - John J. Ross-William C. Blakley Law Library) have posted The Evolving Nature of Faculty Publications on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
Technology increasingly drives the evolving nature of the library's role in managing faculty publications. Libraries not only create physical archives of faculty scholarship, but take on the active role of facilitating immediate access to content. Trends in legal scholarship, including new formats such as blogs and podcasts and the open access initiatives, compel libraries to develop creative solutions such as enhanced bibliographies, searchable databases, and digital repositories to manage access, preserve, and disseminate faculty writings.
