Contributing Student Works

Contributing to ScholarSpace or eVols can be a valuable step in your scholarship. To learn more, read Reasons to Submit your Work.

Student submission of class projects to ScholarSpace/eVols must be sanctioned by an academic department or program of the University of Hawaii. Some schools or programs expect students to submit their work directly to ScholarSpace/eVols; others expect students to work with the ScholarSpace/eVols Administrators.

If you would like to submit material to an existing student collection, please contact the appropriate faculty member, or the administrative office of the school or program for information about requirements, style guidelines and the approval process.

Creation of new student collections requires departmental approval and either a faculty liaison or departmental administrative support person. If you would like to add a new student collection to the repository, you will need to speak with faculty in the appropriate department or program about their interest in starting such a collection. Interested faculty should then contact
