Program Overview

Arizona State University Libraries created the ASU Digital Repository to support ASU’s commitment to excellence, access, and impact. The ASU Digital Repository advances the New American University by providing a central place to collect, preserve, and discover the creative and scholarly output from ASU faculty, research partners, staff, and students. Providing free, online access to ASU scholarship benefits our local community, encourages transdisciplinary research, and engages scholars and researchers worldwide, increasing impact globally through the rapid dissemination of knowledge. The ASU Digital Repository improves the visibility of content by exposing it to commercial search engines such as Google, the ASU Libraries’ One Search, as well as the ASU Digital Repository search portal. The ASU Digital Repository helps meet public access policies and archival requirements specified by many federal grants.
