TRUSpace Goals

TRUSpace, TRU’s own institutional repository, and allows the library to begin archiving and making accessible the research and local resources that make the university so unique. The acceptance of content will be staged to allow for the establishment of proper procedures, policies and to ensure that content is optimized for discovery. TRUSpace ensures that TRU meets the open access mandates put forth as part of all tri-council grants. The University Library is excited to be able to bring this resource to life, and believes it holds great promise for putting TRU and Kamloops on the proverbial and literal map.

The goals of TRUSpace are to:

  • Enhance the visibility and reach of Thompson River University's scholarship
  • Provide free, open and timely access to TRU scholarship
  • Preserve and provide long-term access to this digital content
  • Encourage scholarly collaboration within TRU and with others
  • Capture examples of TRU's community engagement
