NPS Archive: Calhoun / Annual Reports

Calhoun, the NPS Institutional Archive, makes NPS work publicly accessible. It is made for searching, sharing and downloading the scholarly, instructional and institutional publications and research products of the NPS community.

2014 Has Been a Great Year

Good news this year for Calhoun:

  • We're up to speed: Calhoun has been updated with a new software version, with a statistics module, list-generating feature and curation tools
  • "Discovery" makes it easy: locate more of the relevant items you need, on every screen of Calhoun: just look to the right
  • Notable new content: Calhoun now includes video, podcasts and software, along with presentations, papers, technical reports, theses and dissertations
  • Constantly growing: Now with over 42,000 fully-cataloged documents in every area of NPS research from Aeronautics to Zimbabwe

NPS authors increasingly point to Calhoun:

  • For links to their archived papers (example)
  • For links to project output (example)
  • For metadata to provide answers about NPS research 
  • For better visibility: Calhoun metadata is interoperable with other institutions' repositories, and is indexed by Google Scholar

NPS and Data Management:

  • This year, NPS has responded to new DoD requirements for public access to data and publications, and Calhoun stands ready.  Outreach to the campus has included a series of presentations for the Research Board to spread the word: the library can help
  • Public Access to Federally Funded Research: With Calhoun, we're already doing it!
