Institutional Repository: Public vs. Private Institutional Access

Tiered System

Public Access:  The Institutional Repository was built in a tiered system on the Figshare platform.  The Institutional Repository was designed for public dissemination and global sharing of research.

Restricted Access:  The Digital Archives was also built on the Figshare platform.  Items in the Digital Archives are secured through encrypted University login/passwords and restricted to University IP addresses.  (Can we do that?)  Only University Faculty, Staff, and current Students are able to access this level of information.

How to Request Change in Status

How do faculty get an item to go from public to private, vice versa, etc.  Instructions.
