Libraries are becoming increasingly involved in publication activities.  For example, at Washington State University, an Open Journal System (OJS) instance was set up last year and the first journal hosted on it is the WSU publication LandEscapes.  The editors are using the software to support the publication of the 2012 issue and retrospective issues (example: ) are currently being loaded by library staff.

How are institutions tracking this sort of activity and content? Should this material be counted among Library Digital Collections in the ARL Supplementary Stats?
