About BearWorks

BearWorks is a record of publication, research and scholarship at Missouri State University. As the Institutional Repository (IR) for MSU, BearWorks collects and preserves access to the scholarly work of the University’s faculty, students and staff.

Having one location to browse or search scholarly work at MSU allows perspective students, funders and employees to easily see all of the work that is being done at the University.

Curated by the Missouri State University Libraries, BearWorks is funded by the Office of the Provost, the Graduate College, and MSU Libraries.
