How do I upload files to the Digital Repository Service (DRS)?

To upload files in the DRS: Screenshot of the DRS Add File Page


  • Sign in with your MyNortheastern username and password
  • Navigate to a collection
  • Click the “Add” button located in the navigation path at the top of the page or the bottom right corner of the page
  • Click “Upload File”
  • Read and agree to the Terms of Service
  • Select the file you would like to upload
  • Click “Upload”


You will be asked for some basic information about your file, like the title, creation date, creator name(s), and a description. You will also have an opportunity to assign permissions for accessing the file and set an embargo to prevent the file from being downloaded for a period of time.
