Abstract

Opening access to resources isn’t one size fits all. From new research to retrospective content, the Anthropology and History faculty at the University of Central Florida (UCF) are looking for innovative, cost-effective approaches to sharing their work and expertise. Through STARS, UCF’s Digital Commons instance, faculty have access to a platform for their materials and additional support services for a variety of projects. This session will explore the impetuses, creation, and outcomes of four faculty-led projects featuring open educational resources, open data, open syllabi, and an open image database.
