    The USC Digital Library (USCDL) is the digital repository for original research materials which have been selected for archiving by the Libraries. Content made available by the USCDL facilitates new and creative opportunities for scholarship and teaching by providing enhanced access to materials which feature and highlight the Libraries' holdings or from non-Library held collections identified in collaboration with members of the USC academic community. Accordingly, the USCDL provides a wealth of primary and original source material in a variety of formats. These may include, but are not limited to USC theses and dissertations; photographs; rare books, or portions thereof; manuscripts; source documents; sound recordings; moving images; data sets; 'born digital' documents; and digital representations of physical objects. USCDL content can be licensed or sub-licensed to parties outside of USC.
