CORE Deposit Spotlight

Black text that says "CORE Deposit Spotlight" in front of a green background with green and white bubble graphics in the corners.

The Commons Open Repository Exchange (CORE) is a library-quality repository for sharing, discovering, retrieving, and archiving digital work. CORE provides Commons members with a permanent, open-access storage facility for their scholarly output, facilitating maximum discoverability and encouraging peer feedback.

The CORE Deposit Spotlight project came about in April of 2023 as a way of setting aside space to celebrate and amplify the exciting work that our community members are sharing on the Commons. Each month, we choose one (or a few) monthly themes and mine the repository for articles, reviews, chapters, conference papers, teaching materials, and more to share on our social feeds and boost on the Commons. Bookmark this page and check back regularly to see what’s new!
