Association of Research Libraries Holding Digital Scholarship Institute (June 5-9)April 2, 2017
(via the Association of Research Libraries)
The ARL Digital Scholarship Institute (DSI), an exciting new initiative of the ARL Academy, is a five-day, cohort-based opportunity for professionals in ARL member libraries who are new to digital scholarship to develop their skills in an intensive, yet supportive, learner-centered environment. Guided by the principles of community, diversity, impact, openness, and sustainability, the Digital Scholarship Institute will foreground critical thinking about the content and context of the modern research ecosystem. Participants will be trained in a core set of methodologies and tools that will provide both a knowledge base and the confidence to work through the cultural changes sweeping through academic libraries and higher education today.
The first iteration of the ARL Digital Scholarship Institute will take place June 5–9, 2017, at the Connors Center in Dover, Massachusetts, and is hosted by the Boston College Libraries. The ARL Digital Scholarship Institute is co-sponsored by the following institutions: Boston College Libraries; the University Library, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; Indiana University Libraries; River Campus Libraries, the University of Rochester; and UC San Diego Libraries. The cost of the Institute is $1,500, excluding travel and accommodations.
