The TCDL Planning Committee is working hard to make sure your conference experience is fun, inspiring, and as easy as possible. Please contact me directly or email the Texas Digital Library at if you have any questions or feedback about your TCDL experience so far.


Now in its fifteenth year, the Texas Conference on Digital Libraries (TCDL) is a home for communities of library and information workers who support scholarly, cultural heritage, educational materials, open access, open source, and transparency in libraries through digital preservation, repositories, metadata, theses and dissertations, scholarly communications, and research data management. TCDL honors its roots in digital librarianship while also including the work that many other library workers, archivists, and various information professionals do to build, improve, provide outreach, expand, and use digital library resources and ecosystems of scholarship.

As founder and host of TCDL, Texas Digital Library is committed to dismantling white supremacy within our organization and associated communities, addressing inequities in our staff organization and the broader consortium, and helping transform practice and culture in the larger higher education and cultural heritage communities in which we operate. To that end, we enthusiastically invite and encourage members of minoritized communities to attend, present, and enjoy TCDL regardless of your profession, affiliation, or background. All are welcome! 

With presentation session types that include informal conversations, posters, lightning talks, workshops, presentations, and more, TCDL encourages and welcomes submissions from students, scholars, practitioners, researchers, faculty, and users. TCDL 2022 will take place live online and we welcome proposals from Texas-based colleagues and beyond.


Texas Digital Library is a consortium of library and archives professionals that propels the Academy forward by maintaining our past and preparing for the future. Membership in TDL is open to any academic library. Find out more by visiting or email us at
