Why use Merritt?

Merritt's single, shared solution for sharing, managing, preserving, and disseminating digital materials meets a range of needs. The following are a small sample of Merritt's many uses:

  • Take control of your content and provide access how and when you want
    Merritt enables campus constituencies to have direct control over the management, curation, access, and preservation of the information resources underpinning their scholarly activities.
  • Share research with others
    UC researchers have datasets that they would like to share within and across disciplinary communities. Merritt users can share content via persistent URLs.
  • Meet the data sharing and preservation requirements of a grant-funded project
    Increasingly researchers are required by funding agencies to preserve and share data (such as observational data, experimental results, and code books) as a condition of a grant. Merritt can be used to manage, share, and preserve the research outputs of a grant.
  • Provide long-term preservation
    The UC community holds valuable and unique collections in their libraries, museums, and archives (e.g. specimens, oral history recordings, or photographs) that they would like to make available online and preserve for future use. Merritt provides a trustworthy and dependable environment for the long-term management of these valuable materials.
