Digital Commons @ Butler University, the institutional repository for Butler University, reached a major milestone during its celebration of Open Access Week 2014, logging its one-millionth download.

Launched in 2009 and sponsored by Butler University Libraries, Digital Commons was created to preserve and make freely available the creative and intellectual output of the University. Over seven-thousand articles, book chapters, poems, podcasts, conference proceedings, theses, and herbarium specimen have been made globally accessible. To date, Digital Commons has received visits from 185 different countries.

A number of Butler-related journals are hosted in Digital Commons, including the Journal of Hindu-Christian Studies, Word Ways, the Butler Journal of Undergraduate Research, and the forthcoming BU Well. The literary journal Booth and undergraduate literary magazine Manuscripts are digitally archived on the site.

Student, staff, and faculty works are highlighted in Digital Commons, dramatically increasing the reach of their scholarship and giving back to the global community. If you would like more information or are interested in participating, please contact Scholarly Communication Librarian Franny Gaede at 940-9549 or
