Digital Scholarship

Institutional Repository

The Library is currently in the early stages of developing an institutional repository, Knowledge@UChicago, to preserve and share the scholarly, creative, and administrative assets of the University. The repository will be available to the community on a pilot basis beginning in Summer 2016. Please visit our FAQ, or contact Elisabeth Long, if you are interested in being part of the pilot collections, or if you have repository needs for grant compliance.

Data Management

Current public access mandates, using the DMPtool, as well as the overwhelming amount of data available to researchers might have you asking questions. We have created a number of guides to help get you started with your data management needs. For more information, contact your librarian or email

Scholarly Communication

The scholarly publishing world is going through a rapid transformation. Changes to funding agency policies, negotiating author rights, and copyright in the classroom, are now a regular part of academic life. The Library understands the scholarly communication environment and is here to help you increase the impact of your research.
