Sponsored and hosted by the Georgia Southern University Libraries, Digital Commons@Georgia Southern is an open-access digital repository that collects, archives, and disseminates the intellectual and creative output of the University’s faculty, staff, students, and community partners.
Digital Commons hosts contributions from across the campus and the community, including campus documents and publications, faculty and student research, conferences, journals, research data, news, and more. It also houses conference and journal websites with a built-in peer-review system, and SelectedWorks profiles that compile faculty information, scholarship and creative works.
