In order to make your first deposit you will need to contact us so we can add you to the right collection(s). Email with a brief description of who you are and what you want to do, and we can get you set up.

If you are a graduate student submitting your thesis or dissertation, please use the Thesis and Dissertation Submission Site. Once the College of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies has approved the submission, it will show up in HARVEST automatically.

Want to set up a collection for your College/School, conference, research group, or something else? Contact and we can add it to HARVEST.

For more details about submission, content, and policies please see our institutional repository guidelines.

HARVEST helps you share your work with the world through:

Increased Access: HARVEST provides open access to research and scholarship. This means more readers, wider reach for your work, and increased impact. Institutional repositories provide a special kind of open access (green OA) that is free for readers and free for authors too. This improves global access to both reading and publishing.

More Visibility: HARVEST stores information about your work in a consistent and structured way, which means people can find it through Google Scholar or other services (even without ever visiting this site).

Better Preservation: Tired of finding dead links in papers and on websites? HARVEST provides a stable, safe place to store your research for the long term. You can also use the stable and unique links (URIs) created by HARVEST on your personal or research group websites instead of having to host files yourself.

Compliance: HARVEST helps researchers comply with open access policies from funders without paying any expensive publishing fees! (e.g. the Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications).
