University Library A gateway to Melbourne's research publications

Minerva Access

DSpace/Manakin Repository

Minerva Access is the University's Institutional Repository. It aims to collect, preserve, and showcase the intellectual output of staff and students of the University of Melbourne for a global audience.


New Deposit Process for Research Publications!

University staff wanting to make research publications available from Minerva Access must deposit via Minerva Elements , the new University publications system.

Note that access to Elements from home NO LONGER requires a VPN connection

Elements replaces Themis Publications and is fully integrated with Minerva Access. More information on process and sources of information is available at Melbourne Research.

Students depositing theses must still deposit via Minerva Access.


UMER has now been replaced by Minerva Access which is powered by DSpace. It will provide an improved interface, visibility and search capabilities for users.

For assistance with deposit or any queries please contact Minerva Access staff via email or call 03 8344 5004.
