To establish a Collection in an existing Community in Humboldt Digital Scholar, an individual or group must have the support of that Community. The HDS Administrator will establish the requested Collection with the appropriate authorizations in consultation with the Collection Liaison. Individual faculty also may set up personal collections within the already-established HSU Faculty Scholarship Community by contacting the HDS Administrator.
Individual students may submit only to established collections, such as the Graduate Council's Masters Theses Collection, and must have the authorization of the Collection Liaison.
Each Collection may have its own membership, guidelines, and/or standards. Access to Communities or Collections may be open or restricted, according to the Community's needs. The Collection Liaisons determine requirements for each collection, including:
Some Collections may require approval of submissions by the Collection
Liaison, who reviews all items submitted to the Humboldt Digital
Scholar Collection that he or she oversees. If review of each item
is not a realistic goal due to the size of the Collection or due
to time constraints, the Liaison should ca refully review the first
few items submitted and should continue periodically to review selected
items to ensure that Collection policies are being followed and
that appropriate metadata is being provided.
