UNM Digital Repository

The University of New Mexico has established a Graduate Studies manuscript collection as part of the University Libraries. The UNM Digital Repository is an open access digital archive that electronically houses research and creative works produced at UNM or by UNM graduate students and faculty. When you are ready to submit your manuscript after passing your defense and completing all the formatting and approval listed above, you will submit the manuscript electronically as a single pdf file at the following URL: digitalrepository.unm.edu. 

Note: It is imperative that you submit the complete manuscript including the Front Matter as a single pdf file.

Setting Up Your Account in the UNM Digital Repository

  • Navigate to digitalrepository.unm.edu.
  • Click on “My Account” in the upper right corner.
  • Click the large red button and log in with your UNM NetID and password.
  • Fill in the requested information to complete your account.

Transmitting your manuscript to the UNM Digital Repository

When you have completed all of your required revisions and saved your complete manuscript, including Front Matter, as a single PDF file, you are ready to transmit the final electronic manuscript to the UNM Digital Repository.

  • Navigate to digitalrepository.unm.edu
  • Click “Submit Research” in the right sidebar under “Author Corner.”
  • Click on the name of your department in the list under “Electronic Theses and Dissertations. “
  • You will be prompted to log in with your UNM NetID and password. If you have not already created an account, you will have the opportunity to do so now.
  • Read the Submission Agreement, check the check box to accept it, and click “Continue.”

  • Click the “Submit” button at the bottom of the form.
  • You will receive an email confirming your completed submission. This email includes a link allowing you to revise your submission, until the manuscript is accepted by the Office of Graduate Studies.

The Graduate Studies Manuscript Coordinator, Mayra Estrada, will receive a notification by email when you have submitted your manuscript, and she will review your submission for final approval.

The manuscript will not be visible in the repository until the Registrar confers your degree, at which time the Graduate Studies Manuscript Coordinator will post the manuscript to the repository. Doctoral dissertations will also be submitted to ProQuest by the Manuscript Coordinator.

For technical help with the repository submission process, please send an email to disc@unm.edu or call 277-1301.

For all other questions about theses and dissertations, please send an email to mayra85@unm.edu.

Concerning Microsoft WORD 2007 and 2010: The WORD template documents are protected documents that must be "unrestricted" in order to enter text into the gray fields and also to copy/paste into your Microsoft document one file.  When you "open" the template documents go to the Tool Bar, click on Review, then on Restrict Editing, then on Stop Protection on the lower right-hand side of your screen.  You can now populate the fields and complete the template document.

Once the gray fields have been filled out, any non-used gray fields may be removed by placing your cursor at the bottom right side of each gray field that you wish to remove and pressing the Backspace key twice. The gray fields will be removed and the lines will be centered.

You are now ready to save the template documents to your computer.  Click File, Save As and name your documents appropriately.
