Learn more about the people behind TCDL<https://www.tdl.org/2019/11/tcdl-2020-committee/>. The TCDL planning committee is comprised of librarians, archivists, and technologists working in TDL member libraries from around Texas. Each year, the committee defines the conference each year by developing a theme, identifying a keynote speaker, and crafting a call for proposals to invite colleagues from our community to come together for the conference. Take a moment to meet some of this year's committee members, and be sure to thank them when you see them at #TCDL2020.
TCDL is hosted by Texas Digital Library, a consortium of academic libraries committed to preserving, managing, and providing access to unique digital collections of enduring value. Learn more about TDL and the Texas Conference on Digital Libraries at www.tdl.org<http://www.tdl.org>.
