CLIR Issues no. 106 (July/August 2015) is out now, and we want to make sure our DLF readership doesn’t miss all the good news!

CLIR Issues

Some highlights:

  • Congratulations to Michael Suarez on his appointment as a CLIR Distinguished Presidential Fellow!
  • Host a CLIR/DLF data curation post-doc next year– we are currently accepting applications for hosts of postdocs with expertise in medieval data curation, curation of software and digital environments, and data in the sciences/social sciences.
  • Planning is underway for an NEH-funded workshop this winter to explore the viability of Openlab, a new concept envisioned to help galleries, libraries, archives, and museums (GLAMs) use technology to achieve greater public impact.
  • Expressions of interest are now being accepted for the 2016 cohort of the DLF eResearch Network, a peer mentoring experience in which teams of participants from academic and research libraries analyze and develop research data management services at their institutions and build community across institutions. Learn more about the eRN from this recent article in ASIS&T’s Bulletin.
  • New DLF Program Associate Oliver Bendorf answers five questions about his background in creative writing, his involvement with digital humanities, and what he’s looking forward to working on with DLF.
