HNRS 40000: Honors Senior Seminar

About Digital Commons IC

Digital Commons IC is a suite of tools and services that allows the Library to manage, display, and publish IC scholarship and creative works to the web in a highly visible online showcase. In addition, the Commons hosts content about the College itself and other content that the IC Library curates.

As the College's Institutional Respository (IR), it is intended to bring together and provide open access to the intellectual and creative output of the College. With Digital Commons, the Library collects, preserves, and make visible all of our intellectual and creative output, including pre-prints, working papers, peer-reviewed journal articles, student honors papers, conference proceedings, data sets, presentations, streaming media and images.

Adding Content

The Library has established a mediated deposit protocol. Liaison librarians work with faculty to add materials to the Digital Commons. Liaison librarians also consult with faculty who are interested in adding student honors papers and/or Whalen Symposium materials.  

The Library uses the process described in the "Copyright and the Digital Commons" page in this guide to determine any permissions. As items are loaded into Digital Commons, contributors receive an email from the system that verifies the creation of the records.  

Staff, students and administrators who wish to contribute to the Commons should contact Bridget Bower, the site administrator, through

Submission Policy and Guidelines

The current version of our Content Submission Policies and Guidelines is on the Digital Commons Ithaca College site.
