Howard University Faculty Authors database, called Scholarship@Howard, is
an interactive list of faculty publications and
projects since January 1995. The List was posted
on the WWW for the first time on April 20, 1997,
during the Spring Celebration of HU Faculty Authors,
an annual event established by former HU President, H.
Patrick Swygert, in 1996.
Sholarship@Howard is a simplified, cost-effective "institutional repository," conceived for quick and convenient accessibility to HU scholarly production.
Objectives of the system:
- To document individual faculty scholarship
- To document student research scholarship and creative activity performed in partnership with faculty
- To identify areas of research and interdisciplinary work
- To demonstrate departmental and school/college scholarly productivity
- To help prospective talented students and faculty as they explore a university to pursue study or a career
- To serve the campus public relations program
- To respond to stakeholders, especially funding agencies/legislative personnel, and accrediting bodies who demand accountability.
online search tools in all disciplines are
mined to identify and extract many of our
faculty publications, a good number of these
are inevitably missed, especially in the social sciences and humanities, and so we rely on
faculty input to ensure completeness of this database.
HU Faculty Authors database is updated continually.
Faculty members in all University divisions
are requested to send feedback for changes
in existing entries in the database, and
to submit new citations--books, articles,
reviews, exhibition catalogs, multimedia
programs, patents, architectural projects,
etc., that are not already listed.

Abstracts of papers presented at conferences, place
of worship newsletter items,
outlines, and the like are
not within the scope of this database. However,
full-length conference/symposium articles in
published proceedings are
included. Additionally, the citation for an abstract
will be included if the author deposits with
the Library a full-text digital copy of the article
to which the citation will be linked.
Beginning in 2003, the
Library maintains special pages
listing book-length works in each
cover if available. If you have published
a book in the current year, or were the editor/co-editor
of an entire issue of a journal, please submit
for inclusion on this special page.
Additions to the database is continuous
throughout the year. An electronic fill-in
form is provided.
Avoid duplicate entries by first checking the entries
already in the library database.
