2023 BitCurator Forum - Call for Proposals

  • 1.  2023 BitCurator Forum - Call for Proposals

    Posted Sep 30, 2022 03:16 PM

    The BitCurator Consortium (BCC) invites proposals for the 2023 BitCurator Forum, to be held virtually March 28-30, 2023. An international, community-led organization with 36 member institutions, the BCC promotes and supports the application of digital archives tools and practices in libraries, archives, museums, and other cultural heritage organizations.


    In previous years, the BitCurator Forum has focused on sharing strategies, approaches, and best practices for using digital archives tools and methods within processing workflows in archives, libraries, and museums. While we still encourage proposals in these topic areas, we also invite community members to explore themes that focus on areas such as starting from scratch, iteration and scalability, sustainability, implementing "good enough" practices, issues pertaining to access and discovery, and hearing from intersecting perspectives and new voices. 


    The Forum Committee welcomes participation from organizations and individuals working outside of academic and special collections libraries, members from BIPOC communities, students, and new professionals. See more details on our Call for Proposals page


    Submission deadline: October 15, 2022


    Although the 2023 Forum will be virtual, we encourage in-person satellite events to be organized in conjunction with the virtual forum. We will be adding information to the Event page as it becomes available. We hope to see you there!


    The BitCurator Forum is open to all. You do not need to be a BCC member or BitCurator user to submit a proposal and/or attend the event.
