This may include, but is not limited to open educational resources, open access journals, theses and dissertations, university archives, data sets, images, conferences and symposia, scholarly papers and articles. eGrove contains materials selected by participating departments, schools, centers, and institutes at the University of Mississippi (UM) and is administered by UM Libraries. eGrove is freely available to researchers worldwide.

Any University of Mississippi current faculty or staff member, student, research unit, department, lab, center, institute, or organization or affiliate ("unit") is eligible to participate in eGrove. Student organizations are eligible with faculty sponsorship. Alumni and others closely affiliated with the university may request permission from the University Libraries to submit materials.

Eligible depositors will submit full texts of their publication, although they may choose to delay making the publication publicly visible to comply with publishers' embargos.
