The mission of the Loyola Marymount University Digital Library Program (DLP) is to create an enhanced learning and research environment for all within the Loyola Marymount University (LMU) community by creating persistent digital objects that are of high quality and meet currently accepted technological standards. The Digital Library Program supports the university’s mission by fostering access to research and knowledge materials. The DLP comprises of Loyola Marymount University Digital Collections and Digital Commons at Loyola Marymount University and Loyola Law School Scholarship Repository.
Digital Commons is an initiative of the William H. Hannon Library and the William M. Rains Library. The repository serves faculty and institutional interests by collecting, organizing, preserving, and disseminating faculty scholarship and creative works in a digital, open-access environment. This initiative is consistent with the library's archival role and responsibility in preserving publications and other artifacts documenting the university's history and the activities of its faculty, students, staff, and administrators.
