Save the Date: ARL Digital Scholarship Institute to Offer First Session at Boston College, June 5–9, 2017

Boston College, John J. Burns Library

The ARL Digital Scholarship Institute, an exciting new initiative of the ARL Academy, is offering a five-day, cohort-based opportunity for professionals in ARL member libraries 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 will foreground critical thinking about the content and context of the modern research ecosystem. Participants will be trained in a core set of methodologies and tools that will provide both a knowledge base and the confidence to work through the cultural changes sweeping through academic libraries and higher education today.

The first iteration of the ARL Digital Scholarship Institute will take place June 5–9, 2017, at Boston College. Additional details regarding the venue and cost of the institute will become available in February. If you would like to be added to a mailing list in order to receive updates about the ARL Digital Scholarship Institute, please contact Elizabeth Waraksa at elizabeth@arl.org.
