Announcing the new SDR Self-deposit Application

August 9, 2021
Dr. Amy E. Hodge

We are excited to announce the release of a new, online self-deposit application for the Stanford Digital Repository, with a brand-new user interface. The new application was designed with a focus on improved accessibility and better future support for Open Access as well as other campus research and digital library needs.

Much of the content from the old SDR online deposit system has been migrated to the new system. Some collections that originated in the old system were not migrated because they were complete and are no longer growing, but these collections remain preserved in the SDR and accessible via SearchWorks and our repository administrative systems.

In total, 187 collections containing 4558 items were migrated to the new system.

The video below provides a brief (2.5 min.) overview of the new application.

Many people were involved in one or more ways in this project and the eventual, successful release of the new application. Huge thanks to all of you and congratulations!
