News in Brief
The TDL Director Search Committee continues to evaluate candidates to fill the position of Director of the Texas Digital Library. Current director Mark McFarland, who announced his intention to resign in the fall, continues in the post until a replacement is found.
The Digital Preservation Network, of which the TDL is a Launch Team Member, was recognized recently by the Library of Congress as one of the most welcome developments in preservation in 2013. The DPN project is working to build a nationwide network for the preservation of the scholarly record.
