Resource of the Month - The Aquila Digital Community

News item published on: 2023-12-08 08:28:00

Each month, University Libraries highlights a resource from its collection. This month, we are highlighting The Aquila Digital Community, the University's open access institutional repository.

Aquila (Latin for eagle and named after the constellation) is University Libraries’ institutional repository, which is a type of digital library that collects, preserves, and helps disseminate the intellectual output of the University community, including faculty, staff, and students. Some materials you can find in Aquila include recordings from events hosted by the University, theses from the Honors College, open textbooks, newsletters, digital journals published by the university, and many faculty publications. Because much of what is in Aquila is open access, it spreads scholarship from the University out to a wider audience.

Faculty who wish to submit their work for inclusion can find more information here. However, if a publication is not open access, then a permissions letter from the copyright holder is necessary. For more information about Aquila, you can contact , the Scholarly Communications Manager, or , the Institutional Repository Specialist.
