Your success as a scholar doesn't just elevate your reputation... it elevates the University's, too.

eCommons, a service of University Libraries, is a space for content produced by our diverse campus community. It is a permanent multimedia archive of UD's continuous pursuit of transformative education and world-changing research. Search through our steadily growing collections which include:

  • Faculty research
  • Journals
  • University news releases and alumni magazines
  • University archival photographs
  • Yearbooks
  • Marian and Catholic art
  • Special research collections
  • Conferences and events
  • Theses and dissertations

Our eCommons start-up guide provides information about copyright clearance, open-access archiving and SelectedWorks, a companion service for faculty websites.

Your work - published and unpublished - will be discoverable and citable around the world. With your solid research and our technology, we can help draw attention - and maybe research funding, too - to your work. Librarians and eCommons staff can help you determine authors' rights and permissions.
