Each year I supervise and mark dozens of undergraduate dissertations of varying quality and every once in a while a student comes up with a gem.

Where I currently work at Sheffield Hallam University the best dissertations are put into the library as examples for future students to refer to. However I believe there is value in making some of these original research projects available to the wider academic public as many of them contain valuable empirical data.

I would advocate co-authoring with students, even undergraduates, and submitting work to student/graduate focused publications.
