eScholarship@UMMS is an open access digital repository offering worldwide access to the research and scholarly work of the University of Massachusetts Medical School community. The goal is to bring together the University's scholarly output, in full text whenever possible, in order to enhance its visibility and accessibility. We help individual researchers and departments organize and disseminate their research beyond the walls of the Medical School by archiving publications, posters, presentations and other materials they produce in their scholarly pursuits. eScholarship@UMMS is a service of the Lamar Soutter Library.
Faculty, researchers, staff, and students associated with the University of Massachusetts Medical School are invited to deposit their digital materials. For more information about participating in eScholarship@UMMS, see the FAQ or contact at the Lamar Soutter Library.
