About TCDL

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 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.

The 2017 TCDL will take place at the Commons Learning Center (CLC) on the J.J. Pickle Research Campus in Austin, Texas on May 23 – 25, 2017. 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.
