About DRS


The DRS is both a preservation and an access repository.  Its obligations include assurances that stored digital content will remain both viable and accessible into the indefinite future despite a constantly changing technological environment.  All objects managed in the DRS will receive the highest level of preservation service consistent with the object’s characteristics and the current technical capabilities of the DRS and its staff.

Note that the DRS is not intended to function as a record management system or an institutional repository (i.e., it is not designed to capture all of the research output of the university).

See the DRS Policy Guide for more details about eligibility and use of the DRS.
