Looking for a Different Kind of Research Tool?

Check out CSU ePress, CSU’s year-old digital repository that holds the academic output of the university.  You might be asking “What’s in it for me?” and we can honestly say that there’s much that the CSU ePress has to offer for CSU students and faculty.

Using the CSU ePress, one can access electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs) generated by members of CSU over the years. The repository also holds an extensive list of faculty bibliographic references, and a number of faculty publications, in addition to some student publications. 

The CSU ePress is a valuable research tool for those who care to have access to academic materials generated by CSU students and faculty, as well as citation information about faculty publications. For those who care to contribute their work to the repository, it’s an easy way to not only archive one’s work, but also to have one’s work openly disseminated.
All material on CSU ePress is open access, meaning that the material is available for everyone’s use, free of charge.
