Institutional Repository

Kimbel Library

An institutional repository is a system that stores and provides access to the intellectual property of an institution. Materials often found in institutional repositories include research and scholarship from faculty and students, electronic theses and dissertations, digitized objects from archival collections, and other materials unique to the institution. Student scholarship will be a focus of the institutional repository program. The repository can host student publications, student-run events, and materials from conferences such as the Undergraduate Research Competition, emphasizing the importance of student engagement to the university. Student publications such as The Chanticleer student newspaper can be hosted as digital collections, documenting student life on campus. Electronic theses and dissertations provide another showcase of the scholarly output of undergraduate and graduate students, an excellent example of student achievement and success.
