Digital Commons@Georgia Southern is an open access digital collection whose purpose is to collect and disseminate the intellectual and creative output of the University’s faculty, staff and students. Contributions come from all over campus and include theses/dissertations, conference proceedings, research publications, brochures, and newsletters.

Besides housing our University’s scholarship and creative works, Digital Commons also has the capacity to publish online journals and manage conferences. The site also hosts SelectedWorks web pages for our faculty, which are profiles that highlight faculty publications and achievements. All these features of the repository help to expand the visibility and influence of Georgia Southern University to outside academic communities by making publications available on the open web.
