Are you a Stanford faculty, staff, or student and have one or just a few items to deposit? Use our self-service web application and you'll be done in a jiffy.
The benefits of this service distinguish the SDR from other content storage or management options on campus: deposited content is preserved in a robust, reliable, and secure environment for access by scholars today and for generations to come.
Every deposit is accessible at a persistent URL (PURL) maintained by Stanford Libraries. Ideal for citations.
For those cases when open access to the public is not suitable, access to your work can be restricted to Stanford users.
Your work is discoverable in the library catalog, where it is picked up by search engines like Google for users around the globe.
Additional features of self-deposit
Delay the release of your deposit for any time up to 3 years from the date of deposit.
Create a dedicated repository collection where you can add and manage multiple deposits; invite Stanford collaborators to contribute their work too. Option to configure settings for licenses, embargos, DOIs, and access restrictions in the collection.
