What Is a Digital Repository?

As part of the goals laid out in the LUC Libraries Strategic Plan, 2010-2013, Loyola University Libraries propose to develop a suite of services, systems, and online tools for the purpose of collecting, storing, organizing, and providing access to digital assets produced by Loyola University related to research, teaching, and learning. Functioning collectively as a “digital repository,” these initiatives will work in concert to facilitate a wide range of scholarly and archival activities, including content creation, collaboration, resource sharing, author rights management, digitization, preservation, and access by a global academic audience. This open‐access repository will provide for increased discoverability, visibility and access to scholarship created at Loyola, and support the management and long‐term preservation of the intellectual output of the university community.

Questions or comments about the project should be directed to Eben English, Digital Services Librarian, at eenglish1 [at], or 773-508-2686.
