New Oklahoma Website Shares Research

The libraries at Oklahoma State University and the University of Oklahoma have joined together to create a website that makes published research results easily accessible to the public.

The website includes digital dissertations, faculty publications and research, open-access publications and more.

The project is called SHAREOK and is an effort to make federally funded research results freely available to the public. The White House has called for greater transparency in scientific research projects.

SHAREOK hopes to expand to include other Oklahoma higher education institutions in the future.

The deans at both libraries have championed the project.
