About the University of Oxford Text Archive

The OTA collects, catalogues, preserves and distributes high-quality digital resources for research and teaching. We currently hold thousands of texts in more than 25 different languages, and are actively working to extend our catalogue of holdings.

The OTA relies upon deposits from the wider community as the primary source of high-quality materials.

The University of Oxford Text Archive hosts Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) Literature, Languages and Linguistics, which is one of five centres offering archival services for a range of disciplines. Additional services include advising digital projects on good practices in the areas of digitisation, project design and management, copyright and long-term preservation. The AHDS also provides specialist advice for applicants to UK Higher Education funding bodies who are planning to create electronic resources.

For more information on our AHDS activities, please visit our AHDS Literature, Languages and Linguistics website.

The OTA is part of the Research Technologies Services of the Oxford University Computing Services.
