The Douglas College Authors’ Celebration is a biennial College-wide event that publicly acknowledges and honours our faculty, students, staff, and alumni who have authored or co-authored a publication, or its equivalent, within the past two calendar years.
This event is an opportunity to celebrate and recognize College authors, encourage discussion of their works, and ensure that they are available to our broader community through the Library's print and/or digital collections.
Check the library homepage for the biennial event announcements and celebrate your work!
Douglas College Library and The Research and Innovation Office (RIO) offer DOOR (DOuglas Open Repository) as a publishing platform to promote and profile your scholarly work.
