Diversity and Inclusion

The Texas Conference on Digital Libraries (TCDL) invites information professionals  working in higher education, public and private libraries, and cultural heritage institutions from all backgrounds and at all stages in their careers. The TCDL program 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, students, and others — in order to build a practical, usable, and sustainable model for digital libraries.

The TCDL Planning Committee and the Texas Digital Library are committed to the presence and contributions of all persons regardless of age, culture, abilities, bodies, ethnic origin, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, nationality, race, religion, or socioeconomic status. We believe that digital libraries are stewarded and utilized by diverse participants, and that supporting the visibility of such diversity enhances the experiences of all digital library community members. As such, this conference values inclusiveness and the maintenance of a safe and accountable space for all participants.

Texas Digital Library is dedicated to providing collaborative and conference experiences that are free from all forms of harassment, and inclusive of all people. We know that the best problem-solving and critical thinking happens when people with a wide array of experiences and perspectives come together to work in comfort and safety as peers. We therefore expect participants in the Texas Digital Library community to help create thoughtful and respectful environments where that interaction can take place.

The above statement was crafted from examples set forth by the Different Games Conference and the Digital Library Federation Code of Conduct.
