Colenda is a repository system for digitized and born-digital material of enduring value to University and global scholarly communities, serving teaching and research needs. It provides direct access and long-term stewardship for these important resources.
Much of Colenda’s content consists of materials owned and digitized by the Penn Libraries, including significant collections that have been donated to the library. Colenda also includes some public domain digital objects that were created from assets owned by other institutions in the course of a joint project with the Penn Libraries.
Each item in Colenda states whether it is in the public domain, of undetermined copyright, or in copyright but presented by permission of the copyright owner.
