The Digital Commons is Longwood's institutional repository. It serves as an archive of University, student, and faculty publications, and gives the world at large a snapshot of some of the great work being produced here. An institutional repository benefits the institution, the researcher and anyone interested in scholarly outputs. From an institutional perspective it provides a record of scholarly activity taking place within the university. For a researcher, it creates stable and reliable records of your work.
If you include your work, it will:
- Be given a permenant link that you can use to share your work with friends and family.
- Be accessible from all around the world by scholars and researchers.
- Help highlight the quality of work from Longwood students and faculty.
- Give you monthly reports on how often your work is being accessed.
- Help you build a portfolio for future employment or for faculty tenure.
- Establish publication dates to prevent copyright theft.
