Placing publications in the Repository of the Cracow University of Technology takes place taking into account and preserving copyrights. Authors of papers make publications available under open licenses (Creative Commons) or grant a free license to use works in writing. The resources that are no longer subject to legal protection are made available in the public domain. The deposited resources become part of an open system of scientific communication in the field of technical sciences, part of the Open Access initiative.

The Repository of the Cracow University of Technology is maintained and managed by the Library of the Cracow University of Technology.

The main goal of the Repository of the Cracow University of Technology is to increase the visibility, use and impact of research results carried out at the Cracow University of Technology by providing open access to publications through its own repository.

The Repository of the Cracow University of Technology provides each publication with long-term storage and a permanent Internet address.

The Repository of the Cracow University of Technology was created thanks to the following projects implemented in the Cracow University of Technology Library:

"The SUW Integrated Knowledge Exchange and Availability System for Academic Publications in the field of Technical Sciences" Period of implementation: 2009-2012. Project durability period: 2012-2017.

The aim of the project was to provide all interested users with free, open access on the Internet to the publications included in the digital repository on the basis of free licenses and the provision of an open system of scientific communication. As a result of implementing the project, the SUW Platform was created. One of the components of the platform was the Repository of the Cracow University of Technology.

"European Technical Heritage - dissemination of historical and contemporary publications in the field of technical sciences in an innovative IT environment" implemented by the Cracow University of Technology. The Tadeusz Kościuszko Cracow University of Technology (Project Beneficiary) and the Stanisław Staszic AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow (a Partner) as part of the Operational Program Digital Poland. Duration of the project implementation: August 1, 2016 - April 30, 2019.

The aim of the EDT project is to digitally make publications in the field of technical sciences available in an open, free of charge manner and with the smallest possible barriers to the re-use of them. The result of the project will be the enrichment of science resources and dissemination of knowledge in the field of the development of technical sciences, natural sciences, architecture, art, history and cultural studies. The project will provide access to unique library collections, including over 6,000 books and magazines. As a result of the project, thanks to the use of the open Redo software developed by the AGH project partner, the Repository of the Cracow University of Technology was modernized and also made available in a new graphic layout.
