As a graduate student, professional student, or post-doc, your research is a significant contribution to your field and an important part of the university’s history. The Archives and Institutional Assets Program is interested in your work. For example, the University Library keeps a print or digital copy of every UC Davis thesis and dissertation for purposes of preservation and on-site library access (while honoring any access restrictions imposed by the author). The AIAP is spearheading digitization efforts and policy discussions to increase the discovery and access to all UC Davis theses and dissertations throughout history and into the future.
The AIAP is also interested in students' key research materials, supplemental materials, and supporting evidence. Students conducting original research are encouraged to contact Vessela Ensberg, lead of the Data Management Program, with questions regarding data management plans, data discoverability and access, and data preservation.
