Event description

Description

DCDC19 will explore the possibilities of the digital shift for collections, audience expectations, and professional practices. It seeks to go beyond recounting the huge change that the digital shift has represented, and to examine possibilities for the future. How can we reconcile the gathering of ever more detailed metrics around user behaviour and concerns over user privacy? At a time of information abundance, how can libraries and archives remain trusted and “go to” repositories in a crowded market place? How can we ensure the accuracy and authenticity of the digital record? How do our practices and institutional cultures need to evolve to respond to continuing technological change? And how can we track the impact that the availability of information and collections has on research and society more generally?

Open and inclusive in its ethos, the DCDC conferences bring together an unparalleled variety of experiences drawn from across the UK, Europe, and further afield.

When: 12-14 November 2019
Where: Birmingham Conference and Events Centre
Attendance: See website for conference fees
Programme: DCDC19 programme

We advise delegates to review the DCDC19 FAQ before registering for this event.

Registration will close on Friday 11 October.
