Share Your Materials


ASU faculty, academic professionals or staff with an ASURITE ID may deposit materials in the KEEP Digital Repository by using the online submission form. During the submission process, depositors will be asked to review and agree with the deposit license. An ASU staff member will review the materials and contact you for additional information or when the materials are published. If you are a graduate student, please work with the Graduate College or your department.

Departments, Centers, Units

Unit representatives who wish to establish a new collection in KEEP may initiate the process by filling out the new collection request form. An ASU Library staff member will contact the unit representative for next steps.

For unit publications, such as conferences proceedings, working paper series, or research briefs/reports, the unit is responsible for establishing editorial guidelines and for ensuring compliance with unit policies prior to deposit in KEEP. You are also urged to consider copyright and reuse permissions before depositing materials - please see our research guide on this topic for further guidance. 


  • Materials in KEEP are organized by collection.
  • Each collection can have multiple items or multiple sub-collections.
  • Each item can have multiple sub-items or a single file.

Permanent Links

Collections, items and files have permanent links that you can use in citations, courses, websites or blogs.
