TDL Executive Director Debra Hanken Kurtz will speak on digital library collaboration alongside other TDL member librarians and administrators at the 2013 DLF Forum, to be held November 4-6 in Austin, Texas.
Dana Rooks (Dean of Libraries at the University of Houston) will also serve on the panel, along with Mira Greene (Moody Medical Library, UTMB Galveston), Laura Hammons (Texas A&M Thesis Office), Billie Peterson-Lugo (Baylor Libraries), Sarah Potvin (Texas A&M Libraries), and Amy Rushing (formerly of UT Libraries, now UT San Antonio).
The panel presentation is entitled “Corralling the Independent Spirit of Texas Libraries to Re-envision a Collaborative Statewide Digital Library.”
The 2013 DLF Forum, which takes place at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center, is open to all who are interested in contributing to and playing an active part in the successful future of digital libraries, museum and archives services, and collections. The Forum will feature presentations and panels, workshops, research updates, working sessions, demos, and more.
The Texas Digital Library will participate in the DLF Forum in two additional ways: by co-sponsoring a Digital Humanities and Libraries THATCamp on November 7 and by organizing a conference “Dine Around,” in which attendees have a chance to go out for a casual dinner with other attendees at a variety of local eateries.
