Everyday Electronic Materials (EEMs)

The Stanford Libraries Mellon funded grant project, Everyday Electronic Materials (EEMs), created policy and practices as well as software and tools for selectors to add electronic items of scholarly interest to Stanford’s collections. Since its introduction in 2008, the EEMs system was the gateway for adding thousands of digital items to Stanford's library collections, with full catalog records, workflows to support IP rights and payment needs, and persistent access via the Stanford Digital Repository (SDR). After nine years of stalwart service, the EEMs web application was shut down permanently on May 11, 2017. This was replaced by a new process for acquiring, cataloging, preserving, and disseminating both free and paid electronic content items using the SDR online deposit tool.
