About TCDL 2016
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, staff, students, and others — in order to guild a practical, usable, and sustainable model for digital libraries.
Trevor Owens (pictured above) will serve as the keynote speaker for TCDL 2016. Trevor is the Senior Program Officer responsible for the development of the national digital platform portfolio for the Office of Library Services at IMLS. He steers an overall strategy of encompassing communications initiatives, in support of the development of national digital services and resources in libraries. In 2014, the Society of American Archivists gave him the Archival Innovator Award, an award granted annually to recognize the archivist, repository, or organization that best exemplifies the “ability to think outside the professional norm.”
