VTechWorks, Virginia Tech's open access institutional repository, publicizes and preserves the scholarly work of Virginia Tech faculty, students, and staff: journal articles, books, theses, dissertations, conference papers, slide presentations, technical reports, working papers, administrative documents, videos, images, and more. Most content is recent, published within the last 15 years, but there is also a great deal of older and historical content. The full text of all documents is available, often in PDF format, and all entries are indexed by search engines such as Google Scholar and Summon. Any member of the Virginia Tech community can upload material to VTechWorks.

VTechWorks collection policy

Material will be judged for inclusion by the following criteria:

  • The work must be in digital form (see Formats list, below).
  • The work must be produced, submitted, or sponsored by Virginia Tech faculty, staff, administrators, or students.
  • The work must be education, research, service/extension oriented, or it must have historical value to the Virginia Tech community.
  • The author/owner must be willing and able to grant Virginia Tech the non-exclusive right to preserve and distribute the work.
  • The work should be ready for public access.
  • If the work is part of a series, other works in the series should also be contributed so that VTechWorks can offer as full a set as possible.
