The 2020 ARL Digital Scholarship Institute will be hosted by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on Monday, June 15–Friday, June 19.

The Digital Scholarship Institute is a cohort-based opportunity for library professionals and graduate students who are new to digital scholarship and want to develop their skills in an intensive, yet supportive, learner-centered environment. Participants are trained in a core set of methodologies and tools that provide both a knowledge base and the confidence to work in the modern research environment.

In evaluating applications, preference will be given to professionals from ARL libraries, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), and Tribal Colleges and Universities and to current graduate students in library and information science.

The cost of the institute is $1,500, excluding travel and accommodations. Participants are expected to stay for the entirety of the institute.

More Information

ARL will issue a call for applications in January 2020. For more information about the institute’s learning goals and curriculum, see the June 2020 Digital Scholarship Institute webpage. Contact Sue Baughman (sue@arl.org) with questions.
