ACRL Digital Curation Interest Group Community

In: ACRL Discussion and Interest Groups (Association of College & Research Libraries)

Dear DCIG Members,

As you may have heard at business meetings or from interest group minute, the Digital Interest Group is applying to be an ACRL section. We’re hoping for this change to take place in the summer of 2017. There will be lots of opportunities for service and exciting developments. Also, it is no longer necessary to pay for separate section memberships from ACRL, so you can maintain membership in the group without any additional dues besides basic ACRL membership dues.


If you are heading to ALA Midwinter 2015 please consider joining us on Sunday, February 1, 2015, from 1:00pm-2:30pm (US/Central) for the DCIG ALA Midwinter meeting.  The meeting will be held in McCormick Place West in MCP W176c

We are pleased to have Liz Bishoff, principal consultant for The Bishoff Group--a library and cultural heritage organization consulting services organization--to present "Managing Digital Collections: Report of IR/DR Activity among non-ARL Academic Libraries"

A description of her presentation: “In a 2014 survey, non-ARL libraries were asked about the status of their IR/DR implementation…The survey reports on…benefits of an IR/DR, identifies… software used to support an IR/DR and explores…preservation plans…used to support long term access.” 

Edit (2/16/2014): The PDF slides from Liz Bishoff's presentation can be downloaded below.
