Digital Library Summit Calendar

Topic: Resource Sharing for Strategic Growth

Academic libraries are facing constant, growing challenges that strain your local resources. But over twenty academic libraries in Texas are embracing this challenge by sharing infrastructure for digital repositories, academic journal hosting, ETD management, the new Texas Data Repository, and a growing suite of digital preservation services.

At the Digital Library Summits, you will learn about a community model that successfully addresses the need to sustain digital services at every level, from supporting research data management to promoting open education resources to providing long-term access to your institution’s unique digital collections.  

Hear a consortial perspective on:

  • How to support local workflows;
  • How to empower and expand the expertise of your staff;
  • How the Texas Digital Library community can help you leverage shared services.

Learn how to make the best use of your funding and staff so you can invest more strategically in furthering the mission of your library and your university. RSVPs for these events are required – please reply to
