Any department, center or other unit of the University can participate as a community in ScholarWorks. Each community assigns a coordinator who can work with the University Libraries to develop the unit's content and to define the kinds of material to include in the Institutional Repository (IR).
The Libraries encourage contributions of emerging and published research from all AUB community: AUB academic staff (research-oriented publications); AUB non-academic staff (research-oriented publications); AUB adjunct positions (faculty and staff); and AUB students (mainly, but not limited to, theses and dissertations).

Since the first role of an IR is to provide the Open Access literature, anyone with internet access can search and use AUB ScholarWorks.
