The Colorado State University - Pueblo Digital Repository is a campus service and resource designed to preserve and disseminate in digital form the scholarly capital and output of CSU entities, academic staff, and students.
The Colorado State University - Pueblo Digital Repository will reflect the University's excellence, support the rapid dissemination of research, foster at all levels understanding and appreciation of the value of research, learning, and teaching at CSU-Pueblo, and ensure future, persistent, and reliable access to intellectual assets.
The repository complements traditional means of scholarly communication, such as peer-reviewed journals, by expanding the readership and availability of scholarly research and facilitating self-archiving.
The repository aims to capture emerging unpublished scholarship and creative works of CSU-Pueblo authors/creators and to preserve and disseminate previously published works in a manner consistent with copyright law.
Author/creator submissions to the digital repository may include works including but not limited to conference papers and presentations, working papers, white papers, technical reports, approved student research, musical compositions, art, performances, books, and journal articles.
In addition to the works of individual CSU-Pueblo authors/creators, the repository hosts select archival materials, generated by CSU-Pueblo entities such as colleges and departments, that document the history and intellectual life of CSU-Pueblo. The repository also contains digital collections created from the Library's archival holdings to support teaching and research.
