Welcome to the new look for Auraria Library Digital Collections!:

The transition to the new repository, but same URL, occurred bright and early on Wednesday morning, September 15. Now when people access this URL, they'll see a new interface for discovering all the marvelous collections we have from our campus community and beyond.

In addition to accepting written works, scanned materials, presentations and photographs by our campus community, the repository will soon be able to receive datasets as well! Another change on the horizon will be a shared search page with CU Anschutz Digital Collections, our sister repository.

The majority of the content already in ALDC has been migrated over to the new platform hosted by Ubiquity. There may be a few records that are still metadata-only as the files are still being shifted. In this case, you will see a message saying as such and an email link to contact the repository manager. Administrators of the repository can respond to these specific requests to deliver the needed files.

Repositories are always a work in progress, but this is a big shift we are truly excited about. We are continuing work to get all of the i's dotted and t's crossed. There may be some hiccups in the near future, but we're on our way to a flexible and powerful repository for our campus.
