Thank you to all speakers, presenters, and attendees who made the 2014 Texas Conference on Digital Libraries a great event!
TCDL 2014 took place April 28-29 at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center. The conference covers topics relevant to the creation, promotion and preservation of research, scholarship and cultural heritage digital materials and focused this year on the theme “Engaging Outliers: Context, Collections & Community.”
Through the conference presentations and events, attendees explored 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 featured two exciting keynote speakers: Dan Cohen, Executive Director of the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), discussed DPLA’s ambitious endeavor to make the cultural and scientific heritage of humanity available to all; and Karen Coyle, a recognized expert on digital libraries with over 30 years of experience with library technology, addressed emerging trends related to Linked Data.
