We offer guidance on copyright, searching for grant funding, data management, publishing and take requests for new materials. Request a consultation today!

Do you have the BrowZine App?

BrowZine is an app that brings recent issues of scholarly journals to your iPad, iPhone, Android tablet, or Android smartphone. You can save your favorite journals, view the table of contents and read or save articles as new issues are released. Learn more.

*new* Digital Repository for U of M

The Data Repository for U of M (DRUM) is both a place to discover U of M data to use in your own research and an openly accessible archive to deposit data associated with a grant, project, thesis or dissertation. Learn more about how we can help you find, manage, preserve, and share data at z.umn.edu/drum.
