Notice: This platform will be replaced by Northeastern University's new Digital Repository Service (DRS) in Fall 2014. After the transition, permanent URLs for files in IRis will redirect to their new locations in the DRS. If you have deposited materials in IRis you will receive a personal communication about the move to the DRS. Users with questions about this transition should contact us.
IRis is a digital archive that collects, manages, preserves, and shares the intellectual output and historical record of Northeastern University.
IRis was launched by the University Libraries in 2006, using Innovative Interfaces' Symposia software. Since December 2009 it has been hosted by Berkeley Electronic Press's Digital Commons solution. Statistics on this site reflect usage of IRis since the switch to Digital Commons. Historical statistics for 2006-2009 will soon be presented on this page.
