Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsorship opportunities are available for the 2017 Texas Conference on Digital Libraries (TCDL) taking place May 23-25, 2017, in Austin, Texas.

TCDL 2017 represents a significant opportunity to reach a community of leaders and practioners engaged in the development, management, and application of digital library technologies and programs.


About the Conference

The Texas Conference on Digital Libraries (TCDL) 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 library-related digital projects - including outreach librarians, repository managers, cataloguers, technical staff, faculty, researchers, and others - in order to build a practical, usable, and sustainable model for digital libraries.

TCDL 2017 will take place May 23-25, 2017 at the Commons Learning Center on the J.J. Pickle Research Campus in Austin, Texas. The conference, now in its eleventh year, is organized by the Texas Digital Library, a consortium of academic libraries that provides shared services that enable digital programs in support of research, scholarship, and learning.

The conference represents a significant opportunity for organizations involved with digital libraries and other technologies, providing visibility statewide (and beyond), as well as access to a large community of potential collaborators, partners, and customers.

The conference will attract attendees from Texas and throughout the U.S. Attendance at the conference has doubled since 2010, and the Conference Planning Committee anticipates growth again in 2017, with an expected 200 registrants.
