The Digital Programs unit is responsible for the preservation and dissemination of Marquette's research output. Staff are responsible for recruitment of faculty and student work for deposit into e-Publications@Marquette (or e-Pubs), the university's institutional repository (IR). e-Publications was established in 2008 and includes faculty publications, student theses and dissertations, journals, as well as other materials. Forays into digitization of special collections, preservation of research data, and digital humanities projects round out the work of Digital Programs. For more information regarding e-Pubs, visit the IR's webpage.
