About The Keep

The Keep is the institutional repository (IR) and electronic archive of Eastern Illinois University. The Keep brings together the research, administrative output, historical archives, conferences/exhibits, historical images, and special collections of the University. These are all combined under one umbrella, preserving and providing access to these materials.

The Keep is an excellent platform for working papers, university documents, copies of published articles, and conference papers. Presentations, senior theses/honors projects, exhibits and other works not published elsewhere can also be published in The Keep.
