What is a digital repository (AKA institutional repository)?
A digital repository is a place to manage, store, and make discoverable digital content. Content can include journal articles, e-learning objects, and other scholarly, research, and creative works.
What is the purpose of a digital repository?
Many postsecondary institutions have a digital repository; they are especially prevalent in universities. The Library has always collected materials written by RDC/RDP faculty (known as the RDC Authors Collection), primarily in print formats. A digital repository will allow Red Deer Polytechnic to collect scholarly, research, and creative works of faculty, staff, and students in a digital format, making these works more discoverable and accessible.

The RDP Digital Repository is an open access digital collection of scholarly and creative works by RDP faculty, staff, and students, plus institutional documents.

Red Deer Polytechnic recognizes that our campus is situated on Treaty 7 land, the traditional territory of the Blackfoot, Tsuu T’ina and Stoney Nakoda peoples, and that the central Alberta region we serve falls under Treaty 6, traditional Métis, Cree and Saulteaux territory. We honour the First Peoples who have lived here since time immemorial, and we give thanks for the land where RDP sits. This is where we will strive to honour and transform our relationships with one another.
