Niner Commons

What is Niner Commons?

An institutional repository is a free and openly accessible digital collection that captures and preserves an academic community’s research and scholarship output, making it available to the world. The works that make up a repository include preprints, postprints, theses and dissertations, working papers, technical reports, datasets, multimedia, learning objects, and other scholarly materials. Institutional repositories are utilized at thousands of universities around the world to collective benefit. 

 

Why is Niner Commons important for our campus?

Niner Commons hosts and promotes the scholarly works of faculty and researchers from UNC Charlotte while providing valuable long-term preservation. The collection of materials in the repository provide a comprehensive record of efforts, partnerships, results, and products that advance individual and institutional goals. It provides access to the global community.
