Our Philosophy

The publishing program uses a variety of open source software platforms to support our services, and we contribute to their support, sustainability, and development whenever possible.

DSpace is the software that powers the Knowledge Bank. University Libraries is a Gold Member of the DSpace Project. Learn more about DSpace.

Open Journal Systems (OJS) is one of the most widely-used digital journal publishing platforms. It allows for the creation of a standalone journal website, management of editorial workflows, and digital publication of journal content. OJS is created and maintained by the Public Knowledge Project. University Libraries is a Bronze Sustainer of the Public Knowledge Project. Learn more about OJS.

University Libraries uses WordPress to publish its blogs, but we are also investigating its use for scholarly publishing projects. Learn more about WordPress.
