WHAT | Texas Digital Library invites members and community partners to share your events for promotion as well as request (modest) sponsorships.
WHEN | We have no specific deadline, but keep in mind that TDL submits an annual budget for board approval in June of each year. If you know you have an event coming up, the sooner you ask the better.
WHERE | Events will be promoted via our promotional channels (see below). We only promote TDL hosted or sponsored events on our events calendar at https://www.tdl.org/events/.
TDL reserves the right to make changes to your promotional requests for clarity and length.
Event sponsorships require an application. See below for a link to apply.
If a sponsorship is awarded, TDL will follow up with a request for an invoice.
TDL staff member will act as a liaison / point of contact for your event promotion and/or sponsorship.
This staff member will report out to TDL staff and leadership about your group’s activities and field requests between your group and our staff.
Finalize text and images; adjust formatting for promotional materials as needed.
Promote on social media, member forum, e-newsletter, and, in the case of sponsorship, on our events calendar. Additionally, if you have physical promotional materials, you can bring them to the registration at TCDL.
Optional: Depending on our content calendar and needs, we may not be able to promote your event in our e-newsletter.
Submit content via the call for content form.
Coordinate with TDL staff liaison to develop content, and, in the case of sponsorship, complete a sponsorship application form.
