End User Deposit

Libraries can accept submissions of digital content from end users. Deposits can be assigned to library staff for approval, and staff can communicate with the depositor to ask for additional information or that content be replaced. When necessary, staff can decline a deposit. Refer to the documentation for a full description of Alma’s Deposit capabilities.

Alma supports three methods of accepting digital content from patrons:

* Deposit web user interface: Patrons can authenticate, and create and manage their deposits. This interface can be accessed at {alma_url}/deposit/{INST_CODE}.

* Staff Mediated: Patrons can send content manually to library staff, who can deposit it into Alma on behalf on the patron.

* SWORD client: Libraries can implement a SWORD client for depositing end user content. See here for further information.
