This report outlines how the Digital Team at Lesley University Library approached the adoption of the Digital Commons platform. It discusses the methods used to migrate content from the university’s previous institutional repository (IR), Scholarship@Lesley, as well as other online platforms containing scholarly and creative works. It also outlines the achievements and goals for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Lesley University has made significant international impact since the adoption of Digital Commons and launching of DigitalCommons@Lesley on May 19, 2017. Since adopting the platform, we can trace how Lesley scholarly and creative works have been accessed by readers from across the world. Future reports will be able to give the university community a better understanding of what else can be gained by the adoption of the Digital Commons platform.
