About the Viterbo Research Collection

The Viterbo Research Collection (VRC) showcases and expands access to valuable contributions to scholarly content produced at Viterbo University.  The collection is accessible to everyone.  Research in the collection currently includes graduate scholarship and selected undergraduate scholarship.  For help, please contact Jason Skoog at or 608-796-3262.


Submissions for Graduate Students

The Viterbo Research Collection accepts complete, final, and accepted culminating scholarship projects from students in Viterbo University graduate programs.  The following manual provides information regarding deposit policies, style guides and submission standards: Protocol for Graduate Culminating Scholarship Submissions.

The submissions process:

  • After the student passes the committee review of their final work, the program executes and collections the signature pages. 
  • The program submits signed signature pages to the archives.  The program can either scan and email them to, or they can interdepartmentally mail the physical sheets to "Archives, Murphy 132" for the archives to scan and insert into projects.  If the program is unable to collect signatures, the archives will still accept and publish the projects.
  • If IRB forms were required for the work, they must be included within the work after references and appendices.  If IRB forms were used, but not included within the work, the program may send them to the archives for digitization and insertion into the final work.
  • The program submits final work of scholarship in word or PDF format to the archives via email (
  • The archives will generate metadata and post it with the research in the Viterbo Research Collection.
  • By submitting the work you indicate that the author has read and agreed to the deposit policies section of the Protocol for Graduate Culminating Scholarship Submissions.
