Information about using the University of Victoria's institutional repository, UVicSpace


UVicSpace is made up of communities (sometimes broken into sub-communities), which in turn contain collections of items submitted by researchers, students, and staff. A UVicSpace community is a scholarly unit at UVic, such as a department, centre, institute, lab, or other group or individual that produces research. Each community is encouraged to name a community coordinator to help determine and review policies and to ensure the long-term stability of the community.

Although valuable for the strength and success of a community, coordinators are not required for a community to exist or for individuals to belong to and submit to collections within that community. Communities without coordinators will have their policies determined by UVicSpace staff until a coordinator is named. Groups or individuals wishing to establish a community that falls outside of this definition will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
