The mission of the oURspace digital repository is to share and preserve the scholarly, creative, and cultural work produced at the University of Regina.

oURspace provides U of R researchers with a free and secure option to deposit their research publications in an open access repository to meet funding agency requirements for open access. It also contains Theses and Dissertations from 2010 to present, documents from past projects such as the Indian History Film Project, all textbooks produced by the Open Textbook Program, and documents produced by many University departments.

oURspace is indexed by academic search engines such as Google Scholar and it is designed for long-term access to digital files. Publications in oURspace can also be assigned a digital object identifier (DOI) upon request.

If you are interested in sharing your work more broadly or you want to archive some of your past work, please email us at or use our submission form.
