100,000 Downloads for the CSU e-Press

It is time to celebrate!  The publications in the CSU ePress, CSU's institutional repository, have been downloaded more than 100,000 times since the CSU ePress first opened its doors in 2016.

The CSU ePress contains the intellectual and academic work of CSU's faculty and students.  Examples include theses and dissertations, journal articles, scholarly presentations, and conference proceedings.  There are also three open access journals highlighted in the CSU ePress:  Servant Leadership:  Theory and Practice, the Muscogiana, and Perspectives in Learning.  Student creative works are also located in the CSU ePress.  For example, the Arden (CSU's literary magazine) and Momentum are both stored in the CSU ePress.

The CSU ePress is also the home of the reports, maps, and digital humanity projects created by the Columbus Community Geography Center.  The Columbus Community Geography Center (CCGC) is a community-driven collaboration that uses geographical thinking to research, map, analyze, and provide fresh and insightful perspectives on issues in the city and region.

There are also episodes of the CSU TV on the CSU ePress, along with two open access textbooks written by CSU's Dr. Jennifer Brown.

In the future, the administrators of the CSU ePress plan to include media projects and data repositories, along with more theses, dissertations and student publications.
