Digital Commons - Information and Tools



Date of this Version



You have found the UNL DigitalCommons, the university’s institutional repository, and you would like to include some, or some additional, articles or other works in it. If you are not an affiliate of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln or a participant in one of its educational, service, or research programs, then we probably cannot help you. This repository is intended for archiving the scholarly output of the UNL community.

Following is some advice for UNL faculty, staff, students, and associates on the procedures for putting your work online in our publicly accessible UNL DigitalCommons web space, which is search-engine enabled and provides regular reports on the usage (downloads) of your materials. First of all, know that the easiest way to get your works into the Digital Commons is to let our staff do it for you. To take advantage of this service, email your publication list (or entire c.v.) to one of the managers and indicate your desire to have these materials included.

If you feel you cannot wait for us to post your materials, or you are just eager to take control, included here are some tips and guidelines for submitting materials yourself.

We appreciate your participation in the UNL Digital Commons. Since 2005 we have been leaders in the deployment of repositories as agents of change in scholarly publishing. We are one of the country’s and the world’s most successful repositories—based on work produced by this campus and its associated programs.
