About The Aquila Digital Community

The Aquila Digital Community is an open access digital repository containing all of the scholarly works created by the University of Southern Mississippi faculty, staff, and students. Aquila, which is named for the constellation of the eagle, also hosts digital journals and newsletters published by the University, as well as information and resources from events hosted by the University. All submissions to Aquila have open access availability and are indexed, making them highly discoverable through internet search engines, such as Google, thereby extending the University’s scholarly output to a wider audience.

All faculty are invited to submit their publications for inclusion in Aquila, however a permissions letter from the copyright owner is required for any publications that are not open access. For further information on submission procedures, see our Permissions page and our Author FAQ.

The Aquila Digital Community is administered by the University Libraries. For more information, contact:
