About the Digital Repository

The CGEST Digital Repository built using Dspace, is a digital service that collects, preserves, and distributes digital material. Repositories are important tools for preserving an organization's legacy; they facilitate digital preservation and scholarly communication. The Center for Gender Equity in Science and Technology hosts DSpace digital repositories for its affiliates and communities, allowing them provide reliable online access to their outputs.

With a digital repository hosted by the CGEST, we can collect, store, preserve, and disseminate digital content – including documents, audio files, images, and datasets – all within a secure, professionally managed environment in the Amazon Cloud.
