The ARL Digital Scholarship Institute, an initiative of the ARL Academy, is offering a five-day, cohort-based opportunity for professionals in ARL member libraries and archives who are new to digital scholarship to develop their skills in an intensive, yet supportive, learner-centered environment.
Guided by the principles of community, diversity, impact, openness, and sustainability, the Digital Scholarship Institute foregrounds critical thinking about the content and context of the modern research environment. Participants are trained in a core set of methodologies and tools that provide both a knowledge base and the confidence to work with the cultural changes sweeping through research institutions and higher education today.
This fourth iteration of the ARL Digital Scholarship Institute will be hosted by the University of Rochester on Monday–Friday, July 29–August 2, 2019. Additional details regarding the venue and cost of the institute will become available in February 2019.
