What is ERA?
The University of Alberta hosts Era: Education and Research Archive, a digital repository to collect, disseminate, and preserve the intellectual output of the University of Alberta.
ERA is a database with robust supporting storage and preservation infrastructure, as well as a service commitment to the University of Alberta community.
ERA allows open access to University of Alberta
intellectual content wherever possible to promote our institution. Such a policy promotes global opportunities for
discovery and promises to maximize the impact of knowledge generated at
the institution. The repository will also preserve items of research
importance that cannot currently be distributed due to copyright
restrictions, along with all other content in the database.
ERA also provides an easy and convenient solution for faculty who must deposit their research in an open access repository to meet funding agency requirements.
