Instructions for Depositors

Edit August 5th 2019: ELAR is currently undergoing migration to a new archiving system. LAMUS, our former self-uploading platform, has been discontinued. This is a reminder to all ELAR depositors that no uploads or updates can be done on the LAT system anymore. New tutorials will be released in due course. Only the guidelines regarding metadata creation and files formats are available and these too are subject to change. If you are an ELDP grantee and your report is due soon, please get in touch with Peta King at If you are SOAS or external depositor and have not received notifications via email, please get in touch at
