Abstract: Valdosta State University (VSU) has worked for two years to implement an institutional repository (IR), Vtext, to centralize, present, and preserve the intellectual output of our scholars and students in ways not currently supported by traditional library and publication models. To investigate VSU faculty members' scholarly communication behavior and attitudes toward institutional repositories, a survey questionnaire was distributed which showed a rich vein of unpublished scholarly materials that needs to be preserved and disseminated via the IR and revealed faculty members’ willingness to participate in the initiative.
