The University of Richmond’s Scholarship Repository brings together and provides open access to the intellectual content of its faculty, students, and many centers and programs. The repository includes a broad spectrum of materials and formats, including written scholarship by faculty and students.
UR Scholarship Repository is an open-access compliant institutional repository, with content freely accessible to the world and searchable via Google Scholar and other search engines.
All current and emeritus faculty and staff can deposit their work in this repository into their communities (their home departments) by contacting their respective library. Published and unpublished works of current and emeritus faculty and staff may be uploaded into the repository. Images, video, and audio may be uploaded as well.
