Workshop: Developing a Computational Framework for Library and Archival Education, April 3rd & April 4th, 2019

UMD researchers and partners will hold an IMLS-funded workshop to create the building blocks of a Master’s level educational curriculum to educate the next generation of librarians and archivists in the computational treatments of collections. The workshop will be held on Wednesday afternoon on campus and Thursday in Washington D.C. at the National Museum of Natural History on the Mall. Project outputs will include a framework for creating curricula and lesson plans, open access tools for institutions to deliver this type of educational program, and a community development plan to seed future collaboration in this area.

Registration is free.

We seek the participation of interested iSchool educators and researchers and a short statement of interest as the Workshop has limited seating and is by invitation. We will reach back out to you once you have submitted this form
