New partner for DCDC conference series
Along with Research Libraries UK, we can announce that Jisc will be joining us as a partner in the organisation and delivery of the Discovering Collections, Discovering Communities (DCDC) conference series.
In the spirit of collaboration which defines DCDC, all of the partners look forward to ensuring that the conference continues to break new ground, challenge assumptions, and share best practice across the library, archive, heritage and academic communities.
The DCDC conference series is one of the largest cross-sector heritage conferences in the UK and sees archivists, librarians, heritage professionals, and academics exploring ways of enhancing cross-sector collaboration between professional communities during a time of great change.
Attracting more than 400 delegates each year, individual DCDC conferences bring together speakers and delegates from across the UK, Europe, and internationally, to explore a range of issues, from the impact of collections to digital transformation.
Paul Feldman, Chief Executive of Jisc, said: ‘The DCDC conference is unique in the way it brings together practitioners from universities, libraries, archives, museums and galleries to share their expertise and their enthusiasm for curating collections.
‘All these sectors face evolving digital challenges and Jisc is delighted to now be working alongside RLUK and The National Archives to design and deliver the DCDC conference series.
‘We will be looking to blend the strengths of all three organisations to ensure that the event continues to deliver maximum value to the community.’
The 2019 DCDC Conference will be held on 12-14 November in Birmingham, on the theme of ‘Navigating the digital shift: practices and possibilities’.
