PAGE@Tech, a GT library-managed service, will provide a digital platform to disseminate GT-produced knowledge rapidly to information users at any time, in any Internet-ready location they reside, and will preserve that knowledge digitally for future learners to come.
Why is EPAGE@Tech important?
- Georgia Tech should manage and preserve its own intellectual output
- Research indicates increased citation impact for research available freely online
- Granting agencies increasingly tend to require open access archiving or long term posting of research outcomes (i.e. NSF, NIH)
- Hosted scholarly materials are easily discoverable through commercial search engines like Google Scholar and Scirus
