Digital Kenyon

Digital Kenyon is the institutional repository for Kenyon College, providing access to the scholarly works of Kenyon faculty and students.

What types of things are included in Digital Kenyon?

Digital Kenyon provides access to a wide range of digital scholarship created by the college. It includes publications authored by current and past faculty of Kenyon College, digitized materials from Greenslade Special Collections and Archives, and unique collections of digital scholarship. Some examples of these collections include an archaeological dataset, a historical image gallery, and a recorded oral history archive.

Why are some published articles available in Digital Kenyon, while some are linked to publisher sites that require a login?

LBIS (Library and Information Services) researches the licensing rights associated with published scholarly works. If the publisher allows us to provide full-text access through our repository, we do so, if not, we link out to their site. You can often see the publication rights associated with a particular journal by searching SHERPA/ROMEO. If you are faculty at Kenyon and would like to discuss negotiating publication rights for your future publications, please contact your departmental liaison librarian.

Who has access to Digital Kenyon?

Digital Kenyon is primarily an Open Access resource, meaning that it is visible to anyone with an internet connection. However, certain collections are restricted to Kenyon College Campus to protect the intellectual rights of our faculty and students. Additionally, some faculty publications are linked to publisher sites which require an institutional login, or pay-per-view. This is in cases where the publisher’s licensing agreement with the author(s) does not permit Digital Kenyon to make the publication freely available.
