ASU Digital Repository

ASU Library's Digital Repository Services team collects, shares and preserves the cultural, historical and scholarly story of our ASU community, and advances research, teaching and learning by fostering interdisciplinary collaboration and the discovery of new knowledge. ASU Library preserves and provides access to those materials today and for generations to come.


Materials in the ASU Digital Repository are organized by collections, which can be named for individuals, groups, projects or subjects  (e.g., ASU Sheet Music Collection).

What goes in the repository? 

The ASU Digital Repository includes published or unpublished articles, books, papers, conference presentations, images, creative works and research materials. For more detailed information, read our Collection Policy.

Anyone in the world can find materials in the ASU Digital Repository using internet search engines or the ASU Library Catalog.

Who can create a collection?
