The Texas Digital Library conference committee is pleased to announce that the 2014 Texas Conference on Digital Libraries will be held April 28-29, 2014, in Austin, Texas.
By popular demand, TCDL 2014 will return to the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center, located on the UT Austin campus.
This year’s conference theme, Engaging Outliers: Context, Collections & Community, will explore the full range of projects, workflows, use cases and ideas-in-the-making related to digital library work, with a special emphasis of those projects that lie outside of the ordinary. The conference will feature keynote speaker Dan Cohen, Executive Director of the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), who will discuss DPLA’s ambitious endeavor to make the cultural and scientific heritage of humanity available to all.
Additional information about TCDL 2014, including a call for proposals, will be forthcoming.
