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 build a practical, usable, and sustainable model for digital libraries.

Keynote Speaker
TCDL 2016 will feature Trevor Owens from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), as the conference keynote speaker.

Trevor serves as the Senior Program Officer responsible for the development of the national digital platform portfolio for the Office of Library Services at the IMLS. He steers an overall strategy encompassing research, grant making, and policy agendas, as well as 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."

TCDL 2016 has a limited number of hotel rooms available at the ALOFT Austin hotel in the Domain. The rooms will be available at a reduced rate of $169 per night through May 2, 2016.
