Works may include: academic research papers and projects, student newspapers and journals, capstone projects, award-winning works, refereed works, and more.
Digital assets placed in the repository are available to a global audience, and search engine optimization techniques are used to increase their visibility to researchers, future employers, and graduate programs to which you might apply.
