OHSU Digital Commons

Astute users of our digital collections might have already noticed that last month, the library quietly made the switch from our old Digital Resources Library platform to OHSU Digital Commons.


OHSU Digital Commons is the new repository for the library's collections of unique digital content. All of  HC&A's digital collections from the DRL, including our photographs and oral history transcripts, can now be found here. The system uses a combination of Omeka and bepress software. We're still working out some bugs related to functionality and display, but we think you'll agree that OHSU Digital Commons offers significant improvements to the overall user experience.

Our digital collections are always growing. Soon we'll begin adding new digital content to the repository, and we're planning some exciting projects to develop new collections in consultation with the OHSU community.
