An institutional repository (IR) manages, preserves and disseminates an institution's intellectual outputs and digital assets. Such a repository holds a wide variety of material that reflects the institution's intellectual wealth. Our IR is called the UWC Research Repository.
Articles and other scholarly output are deposited via the UWC Article Drop, a holding platform from which they are harvested and uploaded to the Research Repository. A simple guide to the use of the Article Drop is available here. An instructional video to using the Article Drop is also available on the UWC Library Youtube channel here.
