Welcome to the Digital Commons Collaboratory! This is a space where Digital Commons community members can share resources they’ve developed for their repositories but have not necessarily posted publicly.

Materials may include things like marketing collateral, permissions letters, memoranda of understanding, deposit licenses, promotional presentations, or anything else that may be helpful to other repository managers.

Please note, all metadata will be publicly accessible; your full text document is restricted to the Digital Commons community. Digital Commons subscribers may log on to access the materials and to submit new materials.

We invite you to submit your materials to the Collaboratory!
