The American Antiquarian Society has announced “The Digital Antiquarian,” a 2-day conference and 5-day workshop taking place May 29-June 5, 2015, in Worcester, MA.
The two-day conference will open up questions related to digitization, cataloguing, and research design, exploring applications of digital tools and methods to diverse library materials, and identifying needs and opportunities in the development of critical bibliography appropriate to 21st-century tools. Leaders in book history, curators and librarians from university and independent research libraries, and innovators in the digital humanities will convene in Worcester to exchange ideas about the past, present, and future of historical information literacy and the archive.

Registration for the conference is now open; applications for the 5-day workshop and seminar are due by February 1, 2015.
