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.

Since its launch in Fall 2013, Digital Commons@Georgia Southern has grown tremendously in scope and size.  It consists of over 52,000 entries, 600 SelectedWorks profiles, 28 conferences, and 13 journals. 

Downloads originate from over 230 countries. The most downloaded collection is Electronic Theses and Dissertations, with over 1,400,000 downloads. Our most widely-read journal is the International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning with over 478,000 downloads. One of our most popular new collections is the complete digital collection of The George-Anne, with over 79,000 downloads.For more information, see the University Libraries’ Institutional Repository Services guide.
