Digital Commons is the leading hosted institutional repository software for universities, colleges, law schools, and research centers. A Digital Commons repository showcases the breadth of scholarship produced at an institution - everything from faculty papers, student scholarship, and annual reports to open-access journals, conference proceedings, and monographs.

Scholarly material and special collections in Digital Commons repositories are highly discoverable in Google, Google Scholar, and other search engines. Additionally, articles in Digital Commons repositories are indexed in the Digital Commons Network, a free discovery tool for full text scholarly articles used by researchers worldwide. The content is all the institution's own; bepress provides the platform, the support, and the expertise.
