About Institutional Repositories

The Online Research Commons @ ATU is a digital archive for scholarship, creative works, publications, and historical records of Arkansas Tech University. This service represents the Ross Pendergraft Library's commitment to the preservation, open access, and dissemination of these resources.

Institutional Repositories (IRs) bring together all of a University's research under one umbrella, with an aim to preserve and provide access to that research.

IRs are an excellent vehicle for working papers or copies of published articles and conference papers. Presentations, senior theses, and other works not published elsewhere can also be published in the IR.
