About TCDL 2014:

The Texas Conference on Digital Libraries covers topics relevant to the creation, promotion and preservation of research, scholarship and cultural heritage digital materials. This year’s conference will focus on the theme Engaging Outliers:  Context, Collections & Community, and will explore the full range of projects, workflows, use cases and ideas-in-the-making related to digital library work — with a special emphasis on those projects that lie outside of the ordinary.

TCDL 2014 will feature two exciting keynote speakers to frame these discussions. Dan Cohen, Executive Director of the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), will discuss DPLA’s ambitious endeavor to make the cultural and scientific heritage of humanity available to all. Karen Coyle, a recognized expert on digital libraries with over 30 years of experience with library technology, will address emerging trends related to Linked Data.
