Content for Undergraduate Students

The library retains all copies of electronic honors theses. In addition to honors theses, undergraduate students are welcome to submit the following scholarship:

Conference papers and/or posters.

Creative works such as text, photo, or video.

Meeting minutes for University-affiliated groups.

Pre-prints, published articles, and books (with permission of publisher or copyright holder).

Reports, including student or class projects.

Research data from grant-funded projects.

Materials can be submitted through the Submit Research page on eGrove. Student organizations are eligible to submit material with faculty sponsorship. The Digital Initiatives Librarian will work with you to create an accession plan. You can either submit a one-time deposit (for past creations, like a creative work) or set up serial deposits (for ongoing materials, like a journal or lecture series).

If you would like to submit an item that is not in the above categories, email to inquire.

Why is my thesis on eGrove?

In January 2019, an e-mail notification was sent to alumni of the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College to announce the migration of theses from the existing Honors Thesis Repository to the new eGrove repository, with the opportunity to opt out if they did not wish to participate. If you would like to remove your work from eGrove, or embargo your content, please send an email to

If your thesis did not appear in the original Honors Thesis Repository, but you would like for it to be digitized for inclusion in eGrove, please send us an email (, and it will be added to our digitization queue.


If you do not know whether to request an embargo for your Honors thesis, please consult the Embargoes section.
