This year’s theme, Breaking Down Barriers, seeks to spotlight innovative projects and experiences within digital libraries and other digital work/collaborations that push. It aims to transform and overcome hurdles between public/technical services and archives; collections and users; the “digital library” and the “library,” and among different disciplines.


The program committee additionally solicits traditional TCDL-addressed topics such as discussions, presentations, or work on any step in the life-cycle of digital projects or the development of software and applications in the digital library world.


Submissions are encouraged from students, scholars, and professionals in all career or study levels, representing themselves, public and private businesses, and institutions from the great state of Texas and beyond.


Here are some of the broad areas the committee hope to see covered at TCDL 2019:


Complete proposals must include a title, abstract (no more than 500 words), and information for each speaker (name, title, institution, brief bio, and email address).


All submitted proposals are peer reviewed by the program committee to assure that the program provides significant, timely, and authoritative information. All papers presented at TCDL 2019 are published in the conference proceedings, and made available through the Texas Digital Library’s website. The conference language is English.
