Call for Proposals: BitCurator Users Forum 2021

Added on 6 May 2021

Please note that BUF2021 will be virtual and information will be added to the Event page as it becomes available. 

The BitCurator Consortium (BCC) invites proposals for the 2021 BitCurator Users Forum to be held virtually October 12-14, 2021. An international, community-led organization with 35 member institutions, the BCC promotes and supports the application of digital archives tools and practices in libraries, archives, museums, and other cultural heritage organizations.

In previous years, the BitCurator Users Forum has focused on sharing strategies, approaches, and best practices for using digital archives tools and methods within processing workflows in archives, libraries, and museums. While proposals are still encouraged in these topic areas, community members are also invited to explore themes that focus on areas such as starting from scratch, iteration and scalability, implementing "good enough" practices, issues pertaining to access and discovery, and hearing from intersecting perspectives and new voices. 

The Program Committee welcomes participation from organizations and individuals working outside of academic and special collections libraries, members from BIPOC communities, students, and new professionals.

The BitCurator Users Forum is open to all. You do not need to be a BCC member or user to submit a proposal and/or attend the event.

Save the Date: ‘Connecting the Bits’ DPC Member Unconference and Networking Event – Wednesday 16th June 2021

Added on 26 April 2021

DPC Members are invited to Save the Date for Connecting the Bits, our annual DPC Member Unconference and Networking Event which will take place on Wednesday 16th June over two sessions to enable members in different time zones to attend.

In each session we will begin with an exciting programme of fast-paced lightning talks, giving members the opportunity to take the floor and exchange ideas, showcase work and discuss key themes. We will then turn our attention to the next 12 months and ask Members what we should add to the DPC programme of activities for 2021-2022. This year is particularly important as we will also look to Members to help shape our upcoming Strategic Plan which will be relaunched in 2022.

Both sessions will be linked by an hour of informal social networking and a chance for members to relax, connect and chat.
