Eckerd Scholar Project Site

Project site for Eckerd Scholar implementation.


Eckerd Scholar is an institutional repository built on the Esploro platform hosted by Ex Libris. It contains the following key components:


Researcher Profiles highlight faculty at the college, including scholarship, grants and awards, and efforts related to student mentoring and research. Profiles consist of a number of details including:

  • Profile image - from College website
  • Organization unit - mapped from Research Organization Unit list
  • Areas of Expertise - via mapped subject areas and keywords
  • Publications, including altmetrics and open access versions or library access, if available. This is automatically harvested with review and approval by library staff. Manual uploads are also possible.
  • Related links - this might be a personal website, college website, project page, etc.
  • Grant awards

Profiles can be managed internally via library staff, or by researchers themselves through the site.

Student representation in Esploro

Student works are added in the following ways:

  • ETDs - electronic theses and dissertations. Only undergraduate theses are added in this section.
  • Assets - these can consist of presentations, papers, publications, interactive sources, etc. Professor or departmental advisor is added as the researcher with the student listed as a contributor to the asset.

We may need to request additional options/features to highlight student work as we add more student collections and see how they are rendered for a specific faculty member/advisor.

Students do not have profiles like faculty do. However, there name can be associated with specific assets.


Researchers and students have assets associated with them. Assets can be in the following formats:
