(cross-posted – please excuse duplication)

(cross-posted – please excuse duplication)

The Association for Library Collections & Technical Services (ALCTS) seeks panelists for a program to be held at the 2017 ALA Annual Conference in Chicago.  “Creating the Future of Digital Scholarship Together: Collaboration from Within Your Library” will feature librarians involved in the provision of digital scholarship services describing the range of opportunities for technical services ' contribution in this emerging field of librarianship.  We seek speakers who will provide case studies to stimulate ideas for collaboration between digital scholarship and technical services librarians.  The program is expected to attract a diverse audience, including librarians from technical services, public services, and digital scholarship and digital humanities services.  The date of the program is yet to be determined, but will occur on either Saturday, June 24 or Sunday, June 25, 2017.

Those interested in participating on the panel should send an email to the program planners (contact information below) describing the digital scholarship efforts in which they are involved, and specifically contributions those in technical services areas (e.g., cataloging/metadata services, collection development, preservation) serve in this regard.  We are interested in highlighting cross-divisional, collaborative digital scholarship activities as proof of concept for those who have yet to undertake a more holistic approach to provision of digital scholarship services.  Our goal is to pull together a complementary set of three presentations that emphasize the differing aspects of and approaches to digital scholarship activities in today’s libraries.

To propose your topic, include:

●       A description of the proposed presentation in 200 words or less.

●       The digital scholarship efforts in which you are involved, and specifically contributions those in technical services areas (e.g., cataloging/metadata services, collection development, preservation) serve in this regard. 

●       Your name, title, email, and phone number

●       Send the proposal to Norm Medeiros and Andrea Wirth (contact information below) by 5:00 p.m. PST Monday, Nov 14th, 2016.

Notifications will be made no later than December 16th.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
