CURATEcamp Digital Libraries 2013
July 26, 2013 | 8:00-16:30
CURATEcamp is an unconference-style event at which participants will engage in discussions related to data curation and digital archives. It’s an unconventional format, with participants in charge of determining learning objectives by choosing the topics and driving the discussion. And it’s an opportunity to brainstorm on current topics, explore ideas in progress or tough concepts, and share best practices. The theme of this CURATEcamp will be bridging the gulf between the Computer Science dominated world of digital libraries research and the LIS dominated world of digital libraries practice. We hope to foster communication between these oft-times disparate groups. After all, collaboration and awareness leads to great ideas, right?
This open forum allows for discussions with a diverse group of professionals in a setting in which topics develop organically throughout the day. Visit http://curatecamp.org/pages/how-it-works for more information. One of the core goals of CURATEcamp is that everyone engages in peer-to-peer learning, collaboration, and creativity to broaden the digital curation community. Most of all, you’ll be in a position to propose topics, ask questions, get answers, and make connections with your peers in a welcoming environment. There are no spectators at CURATEcamp...only participants!
