About TCDL 2020: Texas Digital Library originally planned for an in-person event for our annual conference, the Texas Conference on Digital Libraries (TCDL).
Due to public health concerns and the rapid spread of COVID-19, TDL made the difficult decision to cancel our in-person conference on Friday, March 13, 2020. Prior to cancellation, nearly 80 proposals were submitted, many of which were accepted. TDL rescheduled a number of events to an online format, and materials from those events make up the bulk of this collection.
