The University of Oxford Text Archive

develops, collects, catalogues and preserves electronic literary and linguistic resources for use in Higher Education, research, teaching and learning.

The University of Oxford Text Archive (OTA) currently holds thousands of texts in more than 25 different languages and is actively working on extending its catalogue of holdings. Deposits from the wider community are the primary source of the OTA’s high-quality materials. Current resources include the works of William Shakespeare, W.B. Yeats, John Milton and Daniel Defoe.

The OTA also hosts Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) Literature, Languages and Linguistics, and 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.
