Call for papers for digital conference
We are issuing a call for papers for our third collaborative conference with Research Libraries UK.
This year’s conference, ‘Discovering Collections, Discovering Communities: Exploring new digital destinations for heritage and academia’ will explore the innovative ways in which heritage and academic organisations can engage with existing and emerging audiences through digital formats.
The conference will take place on 12 and 14 October 2015 at The Lowry, Salford Quays, Manchester. Attendance is free.
We are inviting paper suggestions of 300 words for 20-minute presentations. See the full call for papers on the Research Libraries UK website: www.rluk.ac.uk/dcdc15
