About the UCCS Digital Collections

The UCCS Digital Collections, a service of the Kraemer Family Library within Mountain Scholar, functions as the institutional repository for the University of Colorado Colorado Springs. The repository contains collections that will centralize, preserve, and provide persistent and reliable access to the research output, scholarship, and creative works of faculty, staff, students, and administration of the UCCS campus. It holds accessible digital content, is UCCS community-driven and focused, and is supported by the Library. The repository serves to complement traditional publishing outlets such as scholarly journals and conference proceedings, as well as to capture emerging research and reflect the intellectual environment of the campus.

Current and future collections will focus on making accessible the electronic research, scholarship, and creative works as well as materials that primarily reflect the intellectual environment of the campus. Content and description of collections will be determined by the college, department, office, center, or working group. The Kraemer Family Library will work with members of the campus to upload digital objects and metadata to assure access.

Materials published in the UCCS Digital Collections are published open access with limited provision for time restriction (embargo). By default, all materials in the Digital Collections will be accessible worldwide and on a permanent basis. The management of digital rights associated with the repository will develop in tandem with University policy and legal requirements.
