When you deposit your research data in a repository it will be stored and maintained in a centralized location. Benefits of archiving your data in a repository include:
Your funding agency may require or suggest that you deposit your data in a specific repository. If so, check the Funding Agency Requirements page to learn more. However, if this isn't the case, or if you would like to deposit in more than one repository, there are thousands to choose from. The databases listed here allow you to search for options that range from the very broad to the very specialized.
Michigan Tech's digital repository, Digital Commons @ Michigan Tech, may be a great option for making your data accessible to the world. Researchers can either deposit data or use the repository to link to another location where the data is being managed and preserved. Look through the list of resources from the Van Pelt and Opie Library below to get started. Email email@example.com with any questions.
