Shared Shelf

What is Shared ShelfShared Shelf is a web-based image and multi-media management and cataloging system offered through the UCSD Library that will allow faculty to upload, catalog or tag their own collections and share them with the campus community. 

What are its benefits for our faculty?  Faculty from all disciplines; humanities, social sciences, and the sciences will have the ability to manage their collections and share them locally to the UCSD community or promote their collections on the open web through Shared Shelf Commons.
