system is highly useful to graduate students. The
scholarly communications suite helps researchers
to move print journals online and develop focused
scholarly conferences.
The TDL began in 2005 as a partnership between
the State’s largest universities: TexasA&MUniversity,
Texas Tech University, the University of Houston and
the University of Texas. Collectively, its 15 members
represent more than 250,000 students, 50,000
graduate and professional students and more than
20,000 faculty members.
