About Institutional Repositories

Harrisburg University’s Digital Commons is intended to serve primarily as a repository and showcase for student dissertations, theses, projects, and other notable work as well as the distinguished academic work of faculty and staff. This allows the University to document its contribution to scholarly discourse and practice across disciplines.

Institutional Repositories (IRs) bring together all of a University's research under one umbrella, with an aim to preserve and provide access to that research.

IRs are an excellent vehicle for working papers or copies of published articles and conference papers. Presentations, senior theses, and other works not published elsewhere can also be published in the IR.
