About Institutional Repositories

Digital Commons @ IC is a place to share content created by members of the Ithaca College community, content about the College itself, and other content that the Library curates.

"Our teaching and scholarship are motivated by the need to be informed by, and to contribute to, the world's scientific and humanistic enterprises." -- from the Ithaca College Mission Statement

Institutional Repositories (IRs) bring together all of an institution's research under one umbrella, with an aim to preserve and provide access to that research.

IRs are an excellent vehicle for working papers or copies of published articles and conference papers. Presentations, senior theses, and other works not published elsewhere can also be published in the IR.

To learn more about Institutional Repositories, please visit our IR research page. For questions specific to Digital Commons @ IC, contact the administrator at digitalcommons@ithaca.edu.
