During the last five years, Texas State University Libraries has developed a successful, streamlined, open-source digital scholarly ecosystem enabling university faculty and graduate students with their scholarly research online. This presentation overviews elements necessary to develop such a system suitable for any university, college, research institution or academic research library. Software systems, hardware, human resources, and timelines will be outlined with a pragmatic focus on open source software, best-in-class applications, and global best practices. Major digital scholarly system components and ecosystem synergies in a larger digital ecosystem will be discussed: online institutional collection repositories (D-Space), online research data repositories (Dataverse), identity management systems (ORCID), electronic thesis and dissertation management systems (VIREO), academic journal systems (OJS3), digitization labs, user interface software (OMEKA), results and assessment. The open-source affordances enable large possibilities for university, college, research institution or academic research library on international levels interested in setting up such infrastructures and enabling university faculty and graduate students with their scholarly research online. Future global possibilities, prospects and potential will also be introduced.
