Call for papers: DCDC19 'Navigating the digital shift: practices and possibilities'

DCDC19 'Navigating the digital shift: practices and possibilities'

12-14 November 2019, BCEC, Birmingham

The National Archives and RLUK have announced that the call for papers for the seventh DCDC Conference is now open. DCDC19 will bring together colleagues from across the archive, library, museum and academic sectors to explore the possibilities of the digital shift for collections, audience expectations, and professional practices. It seeks to go beyond recounting the huge change that the digital shift has represented, and to examine possibilities for the future.

Archives, libraries, and museums have continually adapted their content and services to reflect the different ways people are using technology. As a result, we are now working not only as the custodians and curators of digital content, but as the creators of digital material, often in collaboration with academics, students, members of the public, artists, and a range of other groups. Web 3.0 presents numerous opportunities for archives, libraries, and museums to redesign services, engage with new audiences and work with existing groups, in different and exciting ways.

Full details on the call for papers can be found on the DCDC Conference website

The deadline for submissions is 26 April 2019.
