Smithsonian Research Online (SRO) is an ever-expanding collection of published research from Smithsonian scholars. The Smithsonian Libraries collaborates with research and curatorial staff from the Smithsonian Institution's 20 museums and nine research centers to ensure the preservation of this legacy and to provide world-wide access to this intellectual output.

As a discovery tool for Smithsonian Research, SRO has two primary components: a Research Bibliography of publication citations and a Digital Repository of full online editions. Researchers and scholars affiliated with the Smithsonian are encouraged to contribute to SRO, which currently collects around 2,000 citations for the Research Bibliography each year. Many staff contributors also provide their corresponding publication in the Digital Repository.

SRO more than just an official record—it's also used by Smithsonian departments to highlight staff publications. Several Smithsonian museums and research centers have created web pages for their staff with links to their SRO publications, where full editions are instantly available. Additionally, SRO contributes its data to the Smithsonian Dashboard and Collections Search Center.

The Smithsonian Libraries is proud to facilitate scholarly discovery through Smithsonian Research Online.
