About Institutional Repositories

The repository highlights and provides access to content created by current and former staff from the Department of Agriculture and Food in Western Australia (DAFWA), Department of Fisheries, and the Department of Regional Development that were merged into the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) in 2017.

DPIRD Digital Library provides open access to versions of affiliated publications where possible; ensuring content reaches a wide-ranging audience.

The repository can also be utilised as a publishing platform for e-journals, conferences and e-books. The submission, peer-review and publishing processes can all be managed via the platform. DPIRD Digital Library uses the Digital Commons platform.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are advised that the repository may include images, sounds, and names of deceased persons.
