The Texas Conference on Digital Libraries covers topics relevant to the creation, promotion, and preservation of research, scholarship, and cultural heritage digital materials.
The goal of the TCDL is to bring together those working on digital projects — including outreach librarians, repository managers, catalogers, faculty members, technical staff, and others — in order to build a practical, usable, and sustainable model for digital libraries.
This year our theme is Breaking Down Barriers, and will feature keynote speaker Dr. Siva Vaidhyanathan, author of Antisocial Media: How Facebook Disconnects Us and Undermines Democracy and The Googlization of Everything — and Why We Should Worry.
Our conference theme seeks to spotlight innovative projects and experiences within digital libraries and other digital work/collaborations. It aims to transform and overcome hurdles between public/technical services and archives; collections and users; the “digital library” and the “library,” and among different disciplines.
The 2019 TCDL will take place at the Commons Learning Center (CLC) on the J.J. Pickle Research Campus in Austin, Texas on May 20th-23rd, 2019. The CLC is within walking distance of the Texas Advanced Computing Center and near the pedestrian-friendly Domain Austin, featuring more than 100 stores, restaurants, and hotels.
