Our institutional repository is provided and managed by the University Libraries.
If you have an open access publication or are publishing your own report, dissertation, conference proceedings, etc., this is the place to put them. The Libraries will assign a DOI (digital object identifier) to any publication that doesn't already have one. The DOI makes managing, tracking, and finding publications easier. Housing your publications in a repository increases discoverability. This is also the appropriate place to keep publications associated with a research center.
