Have you ever wondered what the scholarly pursuits of your colleagues, professors, and classmates are? Would you like to explore the history of Bryant University, and see actual artifacts that tell the story of the university? Then you should check out the Digital Commons@Bryant University. To access Digital Commons simply hover your mouse over the “Special Collections” tab on the left hand side of the page and then click “Digital Commons.”
Digital Commons is a database powered by a company called BePress. This database holds all kinds of historical and scholarly material for your perusal. Many colleges and universities are exploring ways to provide resources that are more easily accessible. Libraries are also exploring the concept of Open Access. If you would like to read more about Open Access and related initiatives a good place to start would be UC Berkeley the Digital Public of America.

In addition to scholarly material published by faculty and staff our Digital Commons contains lots of historical and archival material. We have the Archway, Bryant Commencements, Bryant Magazine, Historical photos and documents, and so much more.
Also, don’t forget to check out the Bryant College Goes to War archive headed by Professor Judy Litoff. This wonderful collection documents the impact that World War II had on Bryant and its community.
