DigitalCommons@UNO is an institutional repository (IR) with the goal of collecting, preserving, and making visible the intellectual output of our university. The IR creates a permanent open access home for these materials with static webpages which can be found directly through this IR site or via an internet search. This repository demonstrates the values of the University of Nebraska Omaha to be a student-focused metropolitan university recognized not only for its academic excellence but for its outstanding community engagement.

Content in DigitalCommons@UNO is currently accepted from UNO faculty members; however, please check back for updates regarding student scholarship.

For questions regarding DigitalCommons@UNO, please contact Emily Rokisky, IR Coordinator, erokisky@unomaha.edu or (402) 554-2382.

A brief description of how the institution’s library(ies) support open access to research:

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 complement traditional print and electronic publishing in academic fields and ensures the quickest and most accessible dissemination. IRs are also 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.
