Western CEDAR, also referred to as just CEDAR, is Western Washington University’s open access institutional repository, part of an innovative global movement promoting open access to scholarship and creative works. CEDAR advances Western Washington University’s commitment to enriching academic inquiry and strengthening communities by sharing the expertise and creativity of its students, faculty, and staff. This work is informed by the values and mission of Western Washington University, Western Libraries, and that of the open access movement -- to provide access to research and scholarship in an open, inclusive, and equitable manner.

CEDAR is a service of Western Libraries, in partnership with the Graduate School, Office of the Provost, and Office of Research and Sponsored Programs. Funding for CEDAR has been provided by the Gordon H. and Alice C. Fraser Endowment Fund for Equipment for the Sciences. 

More information about Western CEDAR, the materials included, and how to add you or your students’ works can be found at the Western CEDAR About and FAQ pages.
