About Iowa Research Commons

This portal provides a unified search for the institutional repositories of Iowa State University, the University of Iowa and the University of Northern Iowa. It is managed by the university libraries of the three institutions. Content submissions should be made to the specific institution's repository.

Iowa Publications Online is a separate repository established and operated by Iowa Library Services and includes documents produced by Iowa state agencies.

Institutional Repositories (IRs) bring together all of a University's research under one umbrella, with an aim to preserve and provide access to that research.
