The SNHU Academic Archive provides open, worldwide access to faculty and student research and other scholarly work. This is made possible by a $500,000 National Leadership Grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
The initial phase of this project will include digitizing faculty and student research, master's theses and doctoral dissertations from the School of Community Economic Development and the international business program.
This collection includes documentation, policy information, and publications about the Archive.

In 2008, Southern New Hampshire University was awarded a three-year, $500,000 national leadership grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services to create a digital repository using DSpace open source software. Events from the first year of the repository’s development are presented and discussed. Key elements addressed include the challenges involved with customizing the DSpace infrastructure, creating standards for access and master files, implementing metadata standards, and developing digital preservation policies. The value of cross-departmental participation is shown, and the importance of planning for digital preservation is presented.
