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 conference theme this year is 2020 Hindsight: Looking Back, Moving Forward, focusing on lessons learned, challenges faced, and strategies moving forward for digital collections of all types. This year’s conference will feature two keynote speakers, Lauren Cooper and Curtis Small from the University of Delaware’s Colored Conventions Project. Visit our keynote page for more information.

#TCDL2020 will take place in Austin, Texas at the Commons Conference Center (CCC) on May 18-21, 2020. The CCC is located along public transportation routes and is near the pedestrian-friendly Domain Austin, featuring more than 100 stores, restaurants, and hotels.
