The Sir James Dunn Law Library will assist faculty who wish to deposit materials into Schulich Law Scholars by:

  • checking the copyright permissions associated with published work on their behalf.
  • digitizing material not submitted electronically, as far as technology and Library resources permit.
  • uploading the materials into the repository and adding descriptive information (metadata) for each item.
  • managing any time embargos associated with the work. 

Expert Gallery Suite

The Expert Gallery Suite (EGS) is designed to showcase our institution's expertise. Your faculty profile can be customized and configured to display your CV, publications, book reviews, conference papers, presentations, and more. You can also easily link to your SSRN, ORCID, and social media accounts.

Please contact the administrator for assistance where required. Please do not post new materials directly to your EGS profile. Please send them to the administrator of the repository to ensure proper workflow and accurate tracking of metrics.
