Distribution and Access

Items in a Collection are by default viewable by everyone. In cases where limited access is required, individual works or an entire collection of works may be restricted. Even when access to a work is restricted, all users can view the information about the work (the metadata).  Access restriction options must be defined when a Collection is created.

The types of access to works supported by OAK Trust (Digital Repository) are:

  • All users have access (default)

  • All users have access after a designated embargo period

  • Access is limited to a group or subset of the Texas A&M community with a NetID.

  • Access is limited to everyone with an active Texas A&M NetID account.

Should it become necessary to amend access restrictions for a work already in OAK Trust (Digital Repository), contact us.
