Poly Publishing Projects


In August 2019, Kennedy Library launched our Digital Publishing Pilot— working with our donor funded Digital Publishing Research Fellow, jaime ding to raise the visibility and enhance access to Cal Poly scholarship by transposing the immersive onsite exhibits generated by faculty and students into a digital representation. As we embark on the second year of Kennedy Library’s Digital Publishing Pilot, we are already looking toward the future and are sharing our process through this project blueprint.

The Digital Publishing program through “Poly Publishing” aims to enhance access to Cal Poly scholarship through a digitally immersive, interactive system that focuses on collaboration, accessible approaches, and recognition of individuals’ places within structural systems. This structural solution brings inclusive practices, equity, and justice to the forefront of scholarly publishing at Cal Poly — centering historically underrepresented identities, perspectives, and creativity.
