digital collections/ecommons

your success as a scholar doesn't just elevate your reputation... it elevates the university's, too.

ecommons, a service of university libraries, is a space for content produced by our diverse campus community. it is a permanent multimedia archive of ud's continuous pursuit of transformative education and world-changing research. search through our steadily growing collections which include:

  • faculty research
  • journals
  • university news releases and alumni magazines
  • university archival photographs
  • yearbooks
  • marian and catholic art
  • special research collections
  • conferences and events
  • theses and dissertations

our ecommons start-up guide provides information about copyright clearance, open-access archiving and selectedworks, a companion service for faculty websites.

your work - published and unpublished - will be discoverable and citable around the world. with your solid research and our technology, we can help draw attention - and maybe research funding, too - to your work. librarians and ecommons staff can help you determine authors' rights and permissions.
