The CCS Research Repository (RR) features work by staff and full-time and adjunct faculty at CCS, as well as select graduate theses. The RR serves as a central location for the intellectual output of the CCS community and includes Faculty & Staff Scholarship; Creator Biographies; and research-related CCS Events.
An institutional repository serves as a digital archive for collecting, preserving, and sharing the scholarly and creative output of an institution.
Having your textual and non-textual, practice-based creative artifacts in the CCS Research Repository:
Not all art and design is research: in order for practice-based or practice-led art and design to be research-oriented, the creation must be externally motivated. The subject or object of research must exist outside of the creator (Frayling, 1993). Additionally, the research decision-making process must be self-conscious, systematic, and reflective (Frayling, 1993) and documentation of the processes, relationships, and knowledge contextualizing the work is crucial (Malterud, 2012).
