DigitalCommons@UNMC

DigitalCommons@UNMC is an online repository of the research, scholarly communications, and archival materials produced or owned by members of the University of Nebraska Medical Center community. Based on the principle of open access, DigitalCommons@UNMC seeks to make these materials available to a worldwide audience by tagging, storing, and organizing them in a searchable database. Content types can vary widely by discipline, but the goal of storing all content is the same: To provide a common opportunity for presenting internally and globally what is being accomplished at UNMC.
