Who may submit content to eCommons

Cornell University faculty, researchers, staff, and graduate students may submit digital content to eCommons. Undergraduate works are accepted directly from academic programs, or if sponsored by a Cornell faculty member, academic program, or registered student organization.

Users without a current Cornell affiliation must be sponsored by a current member of Cornell’s faculty or staff, and secure a sponsor’s permission to deposit into one or more existing collections. Sponsors must have authority to grant submission permission(s) to the collections involved. For those without a Cornell netID, they will need to write to eCommons administrators to mediate their submission. 

Submitters must have permission to submit to one or more collections. This permission is granted by the designated collection coordinator. Cornell University Library reserves the right to serve as collection coordinator for collections that do not have one. Contact the eCommons Administrators to request permission to submit to a particular collection.
