The Digital Commons brings together all of a University's research under one umbrella, with an aim to preserve and provide access to that research. This is an excellent vehicle for working papers or copies of published articles and conference papers. Presentations, senior theses, and other works not published elsewhere can be included. Items are indexed in OAISTER and Google and are easily found by users searching the Internet.
