Scholar Commons is the University of South Carolina’s institutional repository. Its goal is to preserve, collect, and disseminate the research and scholarship of the university.

Benefits for Faculty
Scholar Commons is an opportunity to increase exposure to your publications and participate in the open access movement. The entire repository is full-text searchable and indexed by major search engines such as Google, Bing, and Google Scholar. You have done a lot of work in researching, writing, and publishing your scholarship, so let the library help you make your work openly accessible.

Get Involved
Contact Ann Holderfield and our Scholar Commons team will research and make available your works which are eligible for deposit into Scholar Commons.

We are currently relaunching this initiative, so we do ask that you be patient with us as we find our footing. If you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns, please feel free to contact us!
