Texas Digital Library
Texas Digital LibraryKristi Park, Executive Director
A collaborative consortium based in Texas and rooted in higher education, the Texas Digital Library builds capacity among its membership for ensuring access to and preservation of digital content of value to research, instruction, cultural heritage, and institutional memory.
TDL partners with its member libraries to provide various publishing services, including Open Access peer-reviewed journals, datasets, electronic theses and dissertations, and Open Educational Resources. TDL provides shared infrastructure for publishing such as hosted institutional repositories, hosted journal software (OJS), a consortial research data repository (the Texas Data Repository), and tools for ETD submission and curation. It also provides coordination across institutions to support local development of value-added publishing services at the institutional level.
