TDL to participate in USRN Discovery Pilot

Texas Digital Library is pleased to participate with its members in a pilot project aimed at improving the discoverability and tracking of articles in U.S. repositories, led by the US Repository Network (USRN).

Two TDL-hosted DSpace repositories — the Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Repository and Texas Scholarworks at UT Austin — are included in the pilot cohort of 20 repositories. Using services from CORE, a not-for-profit aggregator service, metadata and full text articles from these repositories will be harvested and made findable through a centralized discovery service. Deliverables from the project will include concrete recommendations and best practice guidelines for machine and human discoverability of research articles in U.S. repositories.
