Call for papers for DCDC16 – Collections, connections, collaboration: from potential to impact
The National Archives and Research Libraries UK are excited to announce the call for papers for this year’s Discovering Collections, Discovering Communities conference to be held between 10-12 October 2016 at the Lowry, Salford Quays, Manchester.
The conference will bring together colleagues from across the heritage, library, and academic sectors, in a vibrant and inclusive setting, to discuss ways of enhancing cross-sector collaboration, collectively seizing new opportunities, and facing joint challenges.
This year’s conference will look at the varied and innovative ways in which archives, museums, libraries, and academia can help realise the potential of collections and translate this into social, cultural, and economic impact.
Submissions and abstracts are invited for conference papers, full panels, and seminars, and should be submitted by 9 May 2016.
