DCDC19: Call for Papers

We are now inviting proposals for our seventh annual Discovering Collections, Discovering Communities (DCDC) conference, organised jointly with Research Libraries UK (RLUK).

Taking place between 12-14 November, this year’s conference will discuss the topic, ‘Navigating the digital shift: practices and possibilities’.

Every year, DCDC facilitates an open and inclusive environment where colleagues in the archive, library, museum and academic sectors from the UK, Europe and beyond can discuss and contribute ideas on a common topic. Contributions are welcomed from individuals or groups at all stages of their careers, exploring possibilities the digital shift may offer for collections, audience expectations and professional practice.

Conference themes will include:

  • Rise of the machines: artificial intelligence, interpretation, and creativity.
  • Internet of Things: augmenting and evaluating audience engagement.
  • The record: authenticity and trust.
  • The challenge of discoverability of digital records.

To submit a paper for DCDC19 see full details here.

The conference will be held at the BCEC (Birmingham Conference and Events Centre), Birmingham.
