Registration is now open for the The Coalition for Networked Information’s “Planning a Digital Scholarship Center,” a two-day workshop to be held May 17-18, 2016, in Arlington, VA. The workshop is focused on institutions in the early stages of planning digital scholarship services “that will help institutions make informed choices that address institutional needs and priorities.”
More details from the announcement:
This event will assist those institutions in the planning or early implementation stages of a digital scholarship center. Institutions are encouraged to register teams, but individual registrants are also welcome. The target audience includes deans/directors and associate directors of libraries, scholarly communications librarians, digital humanities professionals or faculty, GIS staff, information technology staff, and faculty engaged in digital scholarship.
The workshop will feature a number of speakers describing the development and implementation of their centers with a focus on their challenges and successes. While some speakers may come from centers that primarily work with digital humanities, others will come from centers that work with researchers and students from a wide range of disciplines. Panel sessions will be followed by opportunities for participants to think through their institutional needs and discuss them with fellow attendees.
Until Feb. 15, 2016, registration is restricted to individuals from Association of Research Libraries (ARL) or Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) member institutions. Registration is limited to 100 people. A waiting list will be maintained after the limit has been reached. Register here.
