Notice the left tool bar, select New > Item (if you do not see the left tool bar, please please follow the "Before Submission" guidance above). Once you select "Item", you will be prompted to select a collection for which you have submission permission. If you do not see the collection you wish to deposit into, reach out to eCommons administrators to request permission.
At the top of the submission form, Drag and Drop, or Browse your computer to add the file you would like to submit. Verify your file upload and add additional files if necessary (e.g. supplementary files such as README metadata or a transcript).
Select "Submit your work" in the "Make a deposit" box on the home page. You will be directed to your "MyDSpace" workspace. You can either drag and drop your file or browse your machine to add the files you would like to submit. Once your file is loaded the submission form will appear.
In the box marked "Collection" choose from the drop down menu to select the Collection to which you want to submit your work. The list will contain those Collections to which you are authorized to submit. If you do not see the collection you wish to deposit into, reach out to eCommons administrators to request permission.
Submission form guidelines:
Fill in the form. The more complete your form, the more likely that others will find your work quickly. For advice on describing your content, see Metadata tips.
You should receive an e-mail message explaining how to access and refer to your submission. If your submission requires approval, then you will get your confirmation e-mail message after the submission is approved.
eCommons refreshes its index and generates thumbnail images for new submissions each night.
