Texas Digital Library

The Texas Digital Library is a multi-university consortium dedicated to providing the digital infrastructure to support a fully online scholarly community for institutions of higher education in Texas. Formed in 2005 by four Texas members of the Association of Research Libraries, the TDL has extended membership in the consortium to any of the state’s institutions of higher learning.
Through the establishment of shared policies and standards, forums for professional interaction, expertise in digital collections and preservation, and robust technical services, the TDL aims to increase the availability of the enormous intellectual capital of Texas universities and to preserve it for future generations.
