TDL supports Electronic Journals, where faculty members, libraries, and universities can produce refereed, open-access scholarly journals, ensuring the availability of important scholarship to researchers across the world. TDL Journals are powered by Open Journal Systems (OJS), an open-source journal management and publication software produced by the Public Knowledge Project. In 2019, the TDL OJS User Group was formed. This Group is comprised of library liaisons for campus journals. In this talk we will discuss the function of the user group, as well as the costs and outcomes associated with a consortium approach to library publishing through the OJS system.
