The Washburn University Institutional Repository (WU IR), managed by the University Libraries, is a digital repository offering a central location for the deposit, maintenance and long-term preservation of the research and other scholarly production of the Washburn University Community. WU IR also holds digitized items of value from the University Libraries Department of Special Collections and Archives that highlight the history, nature and culture of the University. One of our key missions is to ensure that these scholarly and creative endeavors are accessible to the widest possible audience. Candidates for deposit in WU IR include journal articles, conference papers, instructional resources, student projects, theses, dissertations, university archival materials, and more.
