Penn State's ScholarSphere is a new research repository service offered by the University Libraries and Information Technology Services.
Share and Save. ScholarSphere enables Penn State faculty, staff, and students to share and save their scholarly works such as research datasets, working papers, research reports, and image collections. ScholarSphere makes these works more discoverable, accessible, and usable, and therefore more broadly recognized and known.
Manage and Preserve. ScholarSphere helps researchers to manage and preserve stored versions of their research, ensuring that future generations of scholars will be able to find, use, and build on it. ScholarSphere’s preservation functions include regular file backups and replication to disaster recovery sites, as well as both scheduled and on-demand verifications of deposited works and tools designed to protect files from possible obsolescence due to changes in data formats.
Secure and Protect. ScholarSphere is designed to keep research secure and unchanged over time. When desired, ScholarSphere can also keep research private by restricting access to an appointed individual or group.
