The Find Five project intends to showcase the digital collections of Texas Digital Library’s member institutions and encourage non-digital library staff to engage with digital content in repositories. Any professional library and archives staff member or graduate student working in a TDL member library is invited to participate in the Find Five project.

A Selection of TCDL Keynote Addresses
2020-04-14 | Lea DeForest, Communications Manager at Texas Digital Library
Each year, Texas Digital Library hosts the Texas Conference on Digital Libraries in Austin, Texas. We work alongside our members on the TCDL Planning Committee to plan and prepare for the conference year-round. However due to public health concerns around the Covid-19 pandemic, we decided to cancel #TCDL2020.
Prior to deciding to cancel this year’s conference, the 2020 TCDL Planning Committee worked very hard to not only make the 2020 event a major success, but to lay the foundation for even more successful conferences in the future. While we at TDL understand the necessity of canceling our premiere event, we are, nevertheless, disappointed that we won’t be able to bring together our regional and national colleagues in libraries and archives this year.
In light of a year without TCDL, I want to highlight keynote addresses delivered at previous conferences, starting with 2007. While scrolling through the five presentations (linked below), I saw where the seeds for projects and future services offered by Texas Digital Library began to grow. When you dig into TCDL’s conference proceedings, you will see a community of librarians, archivists, developers, and others coming together to share and expand on each other’s personal and professional growth. And you will see names that return year after year, an indication of the long-term commitment to scholarship, access, preservation, and research held by TDL’s members, partners, and others in our community.
