The Repository is part of Mountain Scholar, a shared initiative of several academic entities within the states of Colorado and Wyoming.

Works in the CSU-Pueblo Digital Repository are:

  • Free to read and download
  • Securely backed up
  • Easily discoverable by search engines
  • Assigned permanent URLs, so links never break

Faculty, students, and staff are encourage to self-archive their published and unpublished works by placing them in the repository for increased visibility and long-term preservation. The library can assist authors and creators by:

  • Consulting with you on how to check the copyright permissions associated with your published work;
  • Uploading your work into the repository and providing metadata (descriptive information);
  • Verifying and including the citation/publication details of your work within its metadata;
  • Abiding by and managing any embargos associated with your publication or work;
  • Determining the policies of publishers with regard to their copyright agreements with authors.
