About Institutional Repositories

Institutional Repositories (IRs) bring together all of a University's intellectual output under one umbrella, while creating public access to that content.

AUC Knowledge Fountain (Fount), managed by AUC Libraries and Learning Technologies, collects, preserves, and makes accessible online the scholarly and creative efforts of the AUC community. It hosts research and other work by students, including graduate theses and dissertations; publications and other scholarly and creative endeavors by faculty members; and publications, documentation of events, and other material demonstrating the contributions of AUC departments, research centers, offices, and other units.

The repository operates according to the principles of Open Access, promoting worldwide dissemination of scholarly communication. However, some items may be available only to current AUC students, faculty, and staff or from AUC campus locations, while other items may be subject to an embargo period restricting online access. For more information, please refer to the policies and guidelines for each community and content type in the repository.

AUC Knowledge Fountain is based on the Digital Commons platform.
