Institutional, Disciplinary and Multidisciplinary Repositories
Portland State University's Digital Repository is designed to make the work of the University's scholars widely available and ensures that these resources are preserved and organized for the future. It provides a centralized, easily navigable platform for accessing the scholarship of faculty and researchers, including working papers, reports, conference presentations, journal articles, dissertations and theses, and other scholarly materials.
The Portland State University Library is committed to the long term accessibility of all items in the Digital Repository. Each item is assigned a persistent URL, and metadata records are maintained in a permanent archive. There are no access restrictions for most content housed within the repository, and all content may be freely accessed by full text search engines. Research and scholarly output included within the Digital Repository has been selected and deposited by faculty, departments, centers, institutes, and programs throughout the University working in conjunction with the Library.
