Abstract

Miami Dade College’s Digital Commons aims to be the embodiment of a student-first digital archival repository. Archives don’t tend to live at the forefront of student minds, but with the Digital Commons, we aim to include students in the archival process and give them a sense of agency and ownership in the project. The Digital Commons will exist as a database that students use for research, as well as support and help to continue growing as part of their scholastic careers.

The Digital Commons will be an open-access platform that collects, preserves, and makes accessible student undergraduate research and creative works. By collecting these materials, we aim to showcase the quality of education and academic rigor of Miami Dade College, to our internal and external communities. To ensure this repository serves students-first we have developed a few innovations that will cater the repository to student use such as a submission portal, usage of creative commons licensing, and a student-developed folksonomy.
