What is DLynx?

DLynx is a dynamic, web-based digital repository that uses DSpace, open-source software to organize, preserve, and distribute digital items associated with Rhodes College to a world-wide audience.  Since fall 2009, over 9000 items have been added to this collection. 

Who may contribute to DLynx?

DLynx is offered to everyone at Rhodes College as a digital repository for the management and dissemination of digital materials created at the College.  The Archives has made a commitment to the stewardship of these digital materials, including long-term preservation, organization, access, and distribution. 

What can be stored in DLynx?

The DLynx collection contains documents (PDF) and images (JPEG and TIFF).  A team of IT and Barret Library staff provides guidance in establishing a collection--assisting with technical and metadata issues to ensure ease of access to all digital items.
