DLF Data and Digital Scholarship Working Group – Collections as data: institutional possibilities and collective opportunities (joint meeting with RLUK DSN)

Tuesday, March 22, 11 am ET/8 am PT; https://dsn-dds-march.eventbrite.co.uk  

This highly interactive session will follow three successful joint meetings between members of DLF’s Data and Digital Scholarship working group (DDS) and RLUK’s Digital Scholarship Network (DSN).  

The meeting will explore the topic of ‘collections as data’ with speakers from across the US and UK research library and information communities. It will also include opportunities to meet with fellow professionals, share skills and knowledge, hear from skills experts, and receive updates regarding the continued collaboration between the DDS and DSN.

Speakers will include:

  • Sarah Ames, Digital Scholarship Librarian, National Library of Scotland
  • Lauren Tilton, Associate Professor, Richmond School of Arts and Sciences 
  • Thomas Padilla, Senior Director of Collections, Technology, and Partnerships, Center for Research Libraries

You do not need to have attended a previous joint meeting in order to attend this session, and the meeting is open to the DLF and DSN communities. Although a free event, all attendees are required to register.
