Health Sciences Library Launches Digital Collections of Colorado

August, 2012:
The Health Sciences Library is pleased to announce the launch of Digital Collections of Colorado, an open access digital repository. Digital Collections of Colorado is a shared service initiative between the University of Colorado and Colorado State University. The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus Digital Collections, managed by the Health Sciences Library, is the Anschutz Medical Campus’s part of Digital Collections of Colorado. Digital repositories are an archive and dissemination tool for delivering scholarly materials to members of the campus and community. The Digital Collections at the Anschutz Medical Campus feature scholarly and creative works with a focus on health sciences and related disciplines.  Currently, items in the Collections include historic photographs, images of medical artifacts, campus publications and will soon include all of the campus’s electronic theses and dissertations. All items in the repository are accessible to the public.  The library is actively seeking submissions to the repository.
