Geneseo honored its faculty, staff, and student authors recently by posting its searchable online list of more than 165 research and creative works from the past year. Created after the annual author celebration went virtual in 2020, the online resource is now updated annually, with lists from previous years archived on the college’s website.
“This year, the list features work published in traditional avenues, like peer-reviewed articles, contributions to edited volumes, and monographs, but we also include academic achievements outside the narrow scope of traditional publishing,” says Jonathan Grunert, a research instruction librarian (scholarly communications) in Fraser Hall Library. The list of self-reported works includes several short stories, code written to streamline library processes, and some open textbooks; it includes material from traditional publishers like Routledge, Oxford University Press, and Penn State Press as well as material published by SUNY Geneseo through Milne Library Publishing.
“More than half of the works listed are student publications—a remarkable level of undergraduate student publishing,” says Grunert. He also finds impressive the significant number of articles that authors have chosen to make available through KnightScholar, Geneseo’s open access research tool. Use of KnightScholar is increasing every year, he says, “and the materials are freely available to anybody with an internet connection.”
