About SOAR


The Scholarly Online Access Repository (SOAR) is a resource provided by the Kennesaw State University Archives that supports the research, scholarship, and creative activities of the students, faculty, administration, and staff of the university, as well as people in the north and northwest Georgia communities. SOAR serves two functions that further the mission of the Archives. It offers on-demand access to digital materials, both born-digital and analog-to-digital conversions, from the collections of the Archives. SOAR also acts as an online channel to transfer digital files directly to the Archives.

Contribute to SOAR

Current of former students, faculty, staff, or administrators of Kennesaw State University or Southern Polytechnic State University and individuals and organizations in north and northwest Georgia are encouraged not only to use the Scholarly Online Access Repository (SOAR), but to contribute to it. The participation of a diverse group of people in SOAR ensures comprehensive coverage of historical events.

SOAR is only as robust as its users and donors. You don't have to be a celebrity to contribute; you just have to be involved in your community or area of scholarship. Please contact Archives staff if you have any questions regarding the transfer or donation of files.
