Save the date! Yes, it’s early, but we want you to mark your calendars now — because in June of 2018, the Digital Library Federation (DLF) is returning to Canada!
We’re excited to announce that planning has begun for DLFxDSHI — a digital libraries + DH unconference, to be hosted in partnership with our friends at the Digital Humanities Summer Institute (DHSI) in beautiful Victoria, BC. The event will begin with a joint DHSI and DLF Institute Lecture, poster/digital demo session, and reception on Friday, 8 June 2018. Highly collaborative and interactive DLFx unconference sessions will run throughout the day on Saturday, June 9th, followed by short DHSI workshops on Sunday, June 10th.
Stay late to participate in DLFx after the first week of DHSI classes, come early to join us before the second week, visit just for DLFx, or plan to spend a full fortnight expanding your mind and digital library/digital humanities skill sets in an inspiring setting—it’s up to you! And don’t forget that everyone affiliated with a DLF member institution gets a significant discount on tuition at DHSI! (That goes for faculty and students as well.)
Registration for DLFxDHSI will open alongside Digital Humanities Summer Institute registration later this year, and DLF will issue a separate call for peer-reviewed poster and demo presentations in early 2018.
Look for announcements of other DLFx events, soon, and we invite you to contact us if you’d like to host a themed digital libraries/archives unconference or event series in collaboration with the Digital Library Federation.
