    Abstract:
    How might scholarly societies, libraries, and other nonprofit partners work together towards an expansive vision of scholarly communication outreach and dissemination that goes beyond institutional and national boundaries? The author discusses the Modern Language Association's collaboration with Columbia University Libraries on CORE, or the Commons Open Repository Exchange. Like other repositories, CORE facilitates open-access distribution, discussion, and citation of the many products of humanities research, including pre- or post-prints, conference presentations, data sets, and learning objects such as syllabi and slide decks. What makes CORE stand out, however, is its social facet, the fact that it is not an independent entity but an integral part of the much broader Humanities Commons network. The author talks about the process of building and refining the repository and what both the MLA and Columbia University Libraries have learned—and continue to learn—from one another. She posits that we could take the success of CORE as an indication of the potential for scholarly societies, libraries, and other nonprofit entities to work together towards more useful (and more used) open access repositories.
