Digital Repository Services


  • Description — we provide metadata services to ensure that items are wrapped in rich, accurate metadata.
  • Discovery — we provide targeted discovery interfaces and syndicate our content to search engines like Google.
  • Preservation — we are committed preserving data for the long term.


Our digital repository is based on the Fedora Commons project. We are a partner in the Hydra Project — a community of like-minded institutions who are building reusable services on top of Fedora.
