Contribute to the Tufts Digital Library

The Tufts Digital Library (TDL) is a place to explore and discover Tufts' research, teaching, and unique collections online. 

The TDL offers convenient and stable long-term storage and increased access and visibility for digital scholarship. Benefits to Tufts faculty, students, and researchers include:

  • Increased scholarly impact due to work being more widely available to all readers, regardless of their access to subscription resources
  • The ability to deposit a wide range of material that would not otherwise be formally published or available, such as conference papers, posters, working papers, and teaching materials
  • Inclusion in Google & Google Scholar search results
  • A permanent URL to cite your work, avoiding broken links
  • The convenience of not having to host & maintain content on your personal site or your department’s site

How to contribute

Files can be uploaded to the TDL in pdf format via our online deposit form. Depositors will review and click through the Tufts Digital Library deposit license. The submission will be processed by our staff and typically be published in the TDL within two weeks.

What to contribute

All Tufts-affiliated faculty, researchers, staff, and students are eligible to deposit scholarship in the TDL. You can deposit a wide range of published and unpublished content. Visit our FAQ for more information.

You may only submit original work to which you hold copyright, or have permission to submit, and that to the best of your knowledge does not infringe upon anyone’s copyright, trademark, or other lawful intellectual property right.
