About Trinity College Digital Repository


Content will primarily consist of, but not limited to:

  • Articles, creative works, or other projects authored by Trinity Faculty
  • Senior and graduate theses
  • Selected student works, as recommended by a Faculty member.
  • Current and historic serial publications by Trinity departments
  • Other Trinity-related items of historic importance

The Repository may also include Hartford-related material, or items from the Watkinson Library or Enders Collection, if it is:

  • Unique content for scholars
  • Related to Hartford or Connecticut history
  • Relevant to specific classes at Trinity, or its broader curricular mission
  • Serving to preserve, promote and/or provide access to Watkinson materials
  • Contributions

    Trinity College Library administers the Repository, and will work with faculty, students, and departments across campus on the process of identifying and submitting material.

    From Faculty

    Trinity Faculty scholarship that is published under Open Access terms, or equivalent, will be automatically added to the Repository by the Repository Administrator. Faculty are also encouraged to submit their non-Open Access work to the Repository, as long as it is a draft version permitted by the publisher’s copying and distribution policy, e.g. post-print, final manuscript, or pre-print version. The Sherpa/Romeo website may be used to find journal-specific policies on which drafts are eligible for upload to the Repository.

    In general, the Repository will include only work published by faculty while at Trinity.

    From Students

    Student work that is featured as part of campus publication, e.g. The Trinity Papers, The First-Year Papers, Trinity Tripod, etc., and submitted to the Repository Administrator directly from a sponsoring academic department, will be automatically included in the Repository. Individual papers, such as theses or other capstone projects, are also encouraged as long as the work is sponsored by a faculty member. During the Repository upload process, students will be required to supply the name of the faculty member who granted permission for the work to be uploaded.
