Welcome to UTA's institutional repository, ResearchCommons. The repository is an important tool for preserving and showcasing the university's legacy by making the work of UTA scholars openly available, while ensuring these resources are preserved and organized for the future. Because your work is assigned a stable, permanent URL readers will always find it. Depositing works in the repository fosters the preservation of digital scholarship for future generations and provides an alternative to traditional publishing avenues.

For more information, or to include your works in the ResearchCommons, please contact your liaison librarian or Faedra Wills at wills@uta.edu.
