Are you a digital scholarship librarian? Coordinator? Digital humanities liaison? We come to libraries with many different titles and from many different backgrounds. Some of us are alt-acs with Masters and PhDs in the Humanities, some of us have MLS/MLISs, and some have other professional backgrounds. In the end, we all share one thing in common: we have been given the mandate to coordinate and support digital scholarship at our institutions without being part of a fully staffed center or institute (like Scholars’ Lab or MITH). If you are one of these “miracle workers,” then this is the dinner for you.
We want to form a DLF Interest/Working Group, and this dinner will give us an opportunity to plan together what shape and goals we want our group to have. DLF can be our perfect professional home, and it provides a wonderful toolkit and platform to help us along the way. We will meet at Condado Tacos (971 Liberty Avenue) at 6:00pm on Tuesday, October 24. Please add your name to the guest list HERE so we can make the appropriate reservation.
