ScholarWorks is UM’s open access, online repository that helps you document, archive, and share the research and creative scholarship that you present at GradCon. It will give you a permanent link to your conference poster or presentation that you can share with future employers, colleagues, family members, etc. ScholarWorks helps UM document and celebrate graduate student research over time (take a look at the conference archives), and it helps future graduate students learn about research opportunities at UM.

If you or your faculty mentor/advisor DO NOT wish to make your work openly available online, you may choose a campus access restriction and/or an embargo upon submission to ScholarWorks. Please contact Wendy Walker at the Mansfield Library if you need help with or information about these options.

We highly encourage all GradCon participants to upload their posters and presentations to ScholarWorks. ScholarWorks accepts all file types, including audio and video files.
