What is the Digital Commons?

Digital Commons LogoThe Digital Commons is Longwood University’s Institutional Repository. Institutional Repositories (IRs) bring together all of a University’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. Included in the scope are presentations, senior theses, and other works. If you have work you'd like to include, please contact either Sue Carroll or Tammy Hines.

Work included in the Digital Commons is accessible via Google and major search engines, and becomes findable through the Digital Commons Network.

What is Selected Works?

SelectedWorks logoSelected Works is a customizable page where you can upload and display all of your research, including whitepapers, presentations, and class material. It follows you with your career, and is completely yours. Items uploaded to your Selected Works profile can be included in the Digital Commons, but they do not have to be.

You can spend as much or as little time with your Selected Works profile as you'd like. If you'd like to know more about Selected Works, please contact either Sue Carroll or Tammy Hines.
