Interested in Depositing in the SDR?
While the repository system is undergoing redesign and development in 2010, the SDR continues to provide services to prospective and established depositors alike. We can advise on digital collection building activities and steward digital content in a secure, managed environment.
Please contact the SDR team at sdr-contact at lists.stanford.edu.
Accessing Deposited Content
Copies of content deposited in the SDR can be accessed by depositors and other authorized parties as outlined in the deposit agreement.
Retrieval requests are satisfied within 10 business days barring unforeseen or unavoidable delays. Rush requests will be fulfilled as quickly as possible. Requests for a large volume of files may require additional processing time.
Content files retrieved from the SDR may be provided to the requestor by network transfer (e.g., FTP, email) or by storage media (e.g., hard drive, DVD).
If you wish to request access to content currently stored in the SDR, send an email message to sdr-retrieval at jirasul.stanford.edu. Please include the object identifier(s) and filename(s) in the body of the message, and, if applicable, indicate the date when the retrieved content is needed.

The SDR Deposit Agreement
The SDR Deposit Agreement is a written document that formally establishes the details of the service relationship between the depositor of digital content and the Stanford Digital Repository as steward of that content.
An agreement is a requirement for ingestion of an object or a collection of objects into the SDR core preservation system. The SDR Service Manager works with the individuals serving as, or representing the interests of, the content's "custodian" to negotiate the terms and conditions of an agreement.
Inquiries about the SDR Deposit Agreement should be directed to sdr-contact at lists.stanford.edu.
