This year’s theme, Breaking Down Barriers, 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.
Submissions are encouraged from students, scholars, and professionals in all career or study levels, representing themselves, public and private businesses, and institutions from the great state of Texas and beyond.
Peer Review Process
All submissions to the Texas Conference on Digital Libraries will undergo peer-review by the TCDL Planning Committee, composed of 8 – 12 members.
