The Faculty Digital Archive (FDA) is a highly visible repository of NYU scholarship, allowing digital works — text, audio, video, data, and more — to be shared and securely stored. Collections may be made freely available worldwide, accessible to NYU only, or restricted to a specific group.
Full-time faculty may deposit their research — unpublished and, in many cases, published — in the FDA.
Departments, centers, or institutes may also use the FDA to distribute working papers, technical reports, or other research material.
The FDA allows scholars to provide open access versions of their publications, presentations and other research, and faculty are encouraged to use Creative Commons licenses where possible in order to maximize the impact and reach of their work.
By default, content in the FDA is world-readable, unless collection owners choose to restrict access.
How to Request
To have an FDA collection created for you, please contact Beth Russell (firstname.lastname@example.org), Head, Center for Digital Scholarship, NYUAD Library. Once you have a collection in your name, you will be able to deposit your own scholarship into the FDA.
Located in the NYU Abu Dhabi Library, the Center for Digital Scholarship (CDS) provides expert assistance to NYUAD scholars on digital research projects, geospatial data services, guidance and equipment for reformatting media for preservation, incorporating visual media into research and teaching, and support for NYU’s enterprise technology tools. The CDS is also an incubator for faculty-led projects that incorporate library resources, systems, tools, and methodologies.
