About KORA: Kwantlen Open Resource Access

KORA is Kwantlen Polytechnic University's institutional repository for collecting, preserving, and providing online access to scholarly and creative materials created by the Kwantlen community, as well as important documents related to the university's history.

Content is openly available to anyone on the web. You will find articles, working papers, honours theses, conference papers, videorecordings, and more within the repository.

The goals of KORA are to:

  • Enhance the visibility and reach of Kwantlen's scholarship
  • Provide free, open and timely access to KPU scholarship
  • Preserve and provide long-term access to this digital content
  • Encourage scholarly collaboration within KPU and with others
  • Capture examples of KPU's community engagement

KORA is managed by the Kwantlen Library in collaboration with the Office of Research & Scholarship and with guidance from the Senate Standing Committee on the University Library.
