IDEALS - the Illinois Digital Environent for Access to Learning and Scholarship
IDEALS collects, disseminates, and provides persistent and reliable access to the research and scholarship of faculty, staff, and students at the University of Illinois. Faculty, staff, and graduate students can deposit their research and scholarship - unpublished and, in many cases, published - directly into IDEALS.

Most of the material in IDEALS is freely available on the web, findable by search tools such as Google.
