At Hope College, faculty are overwhelmed with the sheer number of places they must submit their publication information, including the institutional repository. A new project to generate citations for faculty chairs has been undertaken with two goals in mind: 1) create bibliographies for departments to use in annual reports, and 2) establish DC as the go-to place to find out what faculty have accomplished in the last year on campus, thereby eliminating the need to submit publication information elsewhere. The goals of this poster are to show the workflow of creating citations, how I worked with bepress to get what we need out of the citations, and report on the progress of how this process benefits the repository and the campus as a whole.
