The Digital Scholarship Institute is a five-day, cohort-based opportunity for library professionals and graduate students enrolled in a library and information science program, who are new to digital scholarship and would like to develop their skills in an intensive, yet supportive, learner-centered environment. This iteration of the ARL Digital Scholarship Institute will take place Monday–Friday, July 29–August 2, 2019, on the University of Rochester campus and will be hosted by the University of Rochester Libraries.
Any library professional at any stage of their career, who is looking to develop their digital scholarship skills and increase their agility in the modern research ecosystem, regardless of rank, degree, or years in the field, is eligible to apply. Graduate students enrolled in a library and information science program and with experience working in an academic library are also eligible to apply. Preference will be given to professionals from ARL institutions, historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), tribal colleges and universities, or current graduate students.

The cost of the institute is $1,500, excluding travel and accommodations.
