are currently developing a program that asks attendees to bring their own expertise and topics to share in the morning, with the objective to use the afternoon to discuss the most substantial challenges that emerge and set our intentions as a group for moving web archiving practice forward in Texas. What web archiving projects are you currently doing or planning that you can talk about at  this conference? Even if you have web content that requires archiving, but no program, we want to know about it!

Web Archiving Texas will be an interactive experience. We highly encourage all participants bring a laptop computer.

The Web Archiving Texas 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 event 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.
