Digital Repository Service

The Digital Repository Service is a secure repository system, designed to store and share scholarly, administrative, and archival materials from the Northeastern University community. It expands upon IRis, Northeastern's previous repository platform, which was first developed in 2005.

Anyone is welcome to use the DRS to discover publicly available content, like theses and dissertations or the University Archives and Special Collections Digital Collections.

Members of the Northeastern community are encouraged to sign in to access additional content that may not be publicly available, like photographs from the Office of Marketing and Communications or certain research materials.

There are several ways for DRS users to deposit material in the DRS. Northeastern faculty can sign in and start depositing right away, and departmental staff can contact DRS staff to get permission to start depositing on behalf of their department.
