What’s Changed?

New Look

The CDR will have a new look and feel.  It will be easier to navigate, deposit and share your work.

New Focus

The new CDR will house scholarly materials only, so that UNC-authored research is easier to locate. All of UNC Libraries’ digital collections will be available in our digital collections repository.

New Features

Collections

CDR users can create and share collections of their own works, or works that have been shared with them.  This feature could be used by departments to showcase their work.

Analytics

The new CDR will offer page view and download statistics for all deposited works.

Proxy Deposit

CDR users can designate another user to deposit work on their behalf.  We hope that this will help faculty, grad students and departmental representatives better manage their deposits.

 

We’ll post more information about the new and improved CDR in the coming months!
