Illinois Research and Scholarship (Open Community)


This collection contains all UIUC research and scholarship which doesn't currently fall under the jurisdiction of a specific community or collection in IDEALS.

All UIUC faculty, staff, and graduate students are encouraged to immediately submit their research to this collection. The submitted work will be reviewed by a small group in the University Library to ensure that it falls within the scope of the IDEALS Collection Policy. In the future, their department or research center may choose to link to their research into a departmental-specific collection.

At this time, undergraduate students at UIUC must ask a faculty or staff member to submit their undergraduate research to this collection. In the future, we hope to also allow undergraduates to immediately submit their own research.

If you have any problems or questions with this collection, or are affliated with UIUC and unable to submit to this collection, please contact
