White Rose Libraries operate the UK’s only jointly-run university repositories, providing access to full-text research from scholars of the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York.

White Rose Research Online and White Rose Etheses Online were established in 2004 and together form one of the most highly-used institutional repositories in the UK, with over 3.5 million downloads of full-text articles and doctoral theses.

The repositories are based at Leeds, with technical support provided by Leeds library services and IT services. A governing committee comprised of stakeholders from the three institutions oversees the development and operation of the repositories.
