    Nominations are open

    Each year, the Texas Digital Library (TDL) Awards honor individuals and groups that have made outstanding contributions to the advancement of digital libraries. Take a few minutes to nominate a deserving colleague - or yourself - before February 18, 2018. Keep scrolling for more information about the awards and links to nominate.




    Overall Excellence

    The Excellence in Digital Libraries Award honors a specific project that demonstrates overall excellence in one or more areas of digital library practice. 




    For Students Only

    The Graduate Student Excellence Award honors an individual graduate student that demonstrates overall excellence and contributions to digital library practice.




    Recognize the Connectors

    The Texas Digital Library Innovative Outreach Award will honor an individual or team that demonstrates a creative and successful approach to reaching new users and building awareness of an organization’s digital library.




    Leaders All Around Us

    The Texas Digital Library Leadership in Digital Libraries Award will honor an individual who has made significant contributions and improvements related to digital libraries. Nominees should lead from every corner of the library, beyond the traditional confines of managerial roles. Anyone who contributes to digital libraries is eligible to be a Leader.




    ScholComm Heroes

    The Scholarly Communications and Excellence in Open Access Award will honor the work of an individual or group of academics, including faculty and librarians, who have made significant advances in our understanding of the issues surrounding scholarly communications and/or in developing innovative content for dissemination through digital scholarly platforms such as institutional repositories, electronic theses and dissertations, or online open access journals.




    The Name Says It All

    Many libraries do not have full-time staff dedicated to digital projects but find creative ways to develop a digital presence. The Texas Digital Library Trailblazer Award will honor the work of an individual or group within a Texas academic library who has used limited resources in innovative ways to create, maintain or support digital collections.




    TDL Awards Announced at TCDL

    Winners are selected by the TDL Awards Committee and are notified in early spring. Award recipients receive one complimentary registration per group/awardee for the Texas Conference on Digital Libraries in Austin, and are honored during a special awards session at the conference.
