A detailed assessment of the accessibility of Texas Digital Library hosted services, with an emphasis on DSpace repository hosting services and the accessibility of other TDL hosted services such as OJS Open Journal Systems, Dataverse, and Vireo Dissertation and Thesis management software. The focus of the study was on assessing the interfaces for each of these programs, and some preliminary assessments of the content hosted in each of these programs. This project of work will serve as a baseline analysis and plan of action guide for future development work in making Texas Digital Library’s website and services more accessible to a broader audience, affecting all member institutions including major state Universities such as The University of Texas System and The Texas A&M University System.
