Digital Commons@USM

USM Libraries is pleased to announce the launch of the Digital Commons@USM at

Digital Commons@USM is an institutional repository, or digital collection, of USM materials including faculty research, scholarship and creative activity.  Many kinds of materials can also be placed in this repository including student research, theses and dissertations, conference proceedings, special collections materials, archives of the student newspaper and yearbooks, music and theatre programs, performances and much more.  Most kinds of media are supported.

While Digital Commons is still in its early stages of content development, you can already view many items under Research unit, center or department.  These include Student Scholarship and Faculty and Staff Books as well as individual faculty pages under our SelectedWorks section. 

The Libraries are soliciting and welcome contributions to the Digital Commons from faculty, students, university departments and programs.  The Libraries will perform the work of scanning and seeking permissions from publishers.  Please email Casandra Fitzherbert at or call 780-4279 for further information or with questions.
