Call for Proposal: ACRL Digital Scholarship Section Virtual Professional Development Program, Spring 2020
The ACRL Digital Scholarship Section's Professional Development Committee, in collaboration with both the Outreach Committee and Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Committee is seeking proposals for the first virtual professional development program in a series on April 15, 2020.


The virtual program aims to bring together people from a variety of institution types and at different stages of their career, to discuss what digital scholarship looks like across the profession. We are looking for both individuals and groups who can speak to different models of digital scholarship practice at a variety of institution types. We encourage submissions from all backgrounds and levels of experience, whether you are part of a team at a center or a solo digital scholarship librarian.

Submissions for either panels or lightning talks should explore a case study or model of digital scholarship work and address collaboration (internal and/or external), challenges and opportunities, issues of sustainability, and any best practices you may have.

Interested panelists should consider how their digital scholarship practices align with the Digital Scholarship Section’s commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion. Panelists should be prepared to engage in anti-oppressive behavior during the session, as articulated in the DSS Community Agreement (


Panels: (60-minute): Panel sessions should address a single topic, based on this year’s theme, from multiple perspectives, with a strong preference for participants from multiple institutions.

Lightning talks: (5-7-minute): Presentations.
