OAKTrust Digital Repository

What is OAKTrust?

OAKTrust (Digital Repository) is an open access digital repository for collecting, preserving, and distributing the scholarly output of the Texas A&M University and its partners. It provides increased access to the products of the University's research and scholarship endeavors, fosters the preservation of these digital works for future generations, promotes increasingly rapid advances in scholarly communication, and helps deepen community understanding of the value of higher education.

OAKTrust provides access to materials such as:

  • Faculty Research
  • Electronic Theses and Dissertations
  • Library Collections
  • Partnering State Agency Collections

Who is it for?

OAKTrust is primarily intended for the faculty, students, staff, and partners of Texas A&M University. The majority of resources are open access and can be viewed by the public. 


All Texas A&M faculty are automatically authorized to deposit their works in the Faculty Publications collection and the Open Teaching Materials collection. To submit your work, please see our OAKTrust Policies and step-by-step instructions. Faculty can also request that a specialized collection be added to OAKTrust by contacting Digital Collection Services at digital@library.tamu.edu


The most common collection contributed to by students is the Electronic Theses and Dissertations collection. These works can be embargoed at the request of the author which will restrict access to members of the Texas A&M University community only. Other student-focused collections include Faculty sponsored student works, capstones and intern reports.
