Penrose Library is pleased to announce the launch of Digital DU, an updated version of the University of Denver’s digital repository. A digital repository is the place where we store digital items – images, documents, video, audio and more – that are important to DU and our community, things we want to keep around for generations. The digital repository contains items from Special Collections, from departments on campus, and items that support student and faculty research. The repository also includes many documents relating to people, places, and events in the history of Denver, Colorado, and the American West.
Digital DU replaces the previous repository, PEAK Digital, with several exciting new features and collections.
- Art images
- Historic and contemporary photographs of Denver and DU
- DU publications
- Oral histories
- Theses, dissertations, and other, student publications
- Faculty publications such as reprints, preprints, and conference presentations
New features include:
- Improved keyword and faceted searching, including full-text searching of documents
- The ability to bring together items on a topic using hyperlinked subject terms
- Better viewing capabilities for all format types, including video, audio, and documents
Digital DU is growing! Expect to see additions to the digital repository over time as we add more items created by DU faculty and students.
