The Flinders Academic Commons (FAC) is an institutional repository for disseminating and preserving the scholarly work of Flinders University. It offers a central location for depositing research outputs or other scholarly work for which authors have retained copyright or acquired permission to do so. In addition, the FAC provides enduring access and makes the content easily discoverable.
The FAC was launched in 2006, initially as a joint project between the Humanities Research Centre and the Library. Now administered solely by the eResearch@Flinders team in the Library, the FAC services the whole University community in archiving outputs from all disciplines, as well as from the University's affiliates.
The FAC uses DSpace software, an open source software platform that was originally developed at MIT to ensure stable, long-term storage for digital research.
