Electronic Theses and Dissertation Management
With Vireo, students submit their digital theses and dissertations via a simple online interface, while graduate offices can manage the ETD approval process behind the scenes. Institutions can also use Vireo to publish the ETDs in their TDL institutional repository and the TDL statewide ETD repository, where they are readily available to other researchers.
The TDL continues to support and develop Vireo under the guidance of the Vireo Users Group.
Digital Public Library of America Aggregation Service
The Texas Digital Library, through its home institution the University of Texas at Austin, is excited to be the recipient of a 2016 Library Cooperation Grant from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission for a project to develop a statewide aggregation service for Texas digital collections.
The TDL and its grant partners, the University of North Texas (UNT) and the Houston Public Library, will use the grant funding to plan for and prototype a metadata aggregation service to showcase the digital collections of Texas and ensure their discoverability in the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA).
