The ACRL Digital Scholarship Section’s Professional Development Committee (PDC) has announced a call for proposals for its 2023 DSS virtual professional development series. The series is a collaboration between the Outreach Committee and the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee, and will focus on topics identified from a recent survey of the DSS community.
Proposals will be accepted on a rolling basis, and accepted proposals will be expected to present 12-16 weeks after acceptance. All proposals that “engage the broader spectrum of digital research and practice” are welcome, though the committee is particularly interested in the areas of digital project management, collections as data, intersections of social justice and digital scholarship, and ethics in digital scholarship.
From the call:
Proposals for either collaborative panel presentations or lightning talks should explore a case study or model of digital scholarship work and address collaboration (internal and/or external), challenges, opportunities, and failures, issues of sustainability, and any best practices you may have developed.
Interested panelists should consider how their digital scholarship practices align with the Digital Scholarship Section’s commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion. Panelists should be prepared to engage in anti-oppressive behavior during the session, as articulated in the DSS Community Agreement.
Short presentations/lightning talks, long presentations, and workshops will be considered. Proposals will be evaluated on an ongoing, monthly basis.
