Platforms

  • eCommons: best for faculty publications, capstone or exemplary student work, journals, conference websites
  • Omeka: best for digital collections
  • WordPress: best for digital collections, conference websites
  • Preservica: best for digital collections, priority to LUC-specific collections and data
  • Other platforms: if needed and with a written agreement, the library may be able to host projects on a platform not listed

Out of Scope

We are always happy to consult on any projects, but the following are examples of projects we will refer you to other groups for support:

  • Projects requiring extensive custom web development
  • Websites that are largely advertising in nature (i.e. website about a conference that does not archive papers or use peer review features)
  • Projects that are never intended to be public
