April 10, 2024, Digital Scholarship Symposium

The inaugural Digital Scholarship Symposium will be held April 10, 2024, in The Catalyst, the dedicated digital research and learning space in Parks Library, 701 Morrill Road, Ames, Iowa. The event will be cohosted by the Iowa State University Library Digital Scholarship and Initiatives department and the Center for Excellence in the Arts and Humanities (CEAH). 

Cosponsored by the Obermann Center for Advanced Studies at the University of Iowa, the symposium will feature two panel discussions: 

  • "Digital Scholarship Pedagogy: Expanding Digital Literacy and Creativity in the Classroom" 
  • "Public Digital Scholarship: Community Impact Through Digital Projects" 

Expert faculty and librarians from Iowa State and the University of Iowa will compose the panels and discuss creative examples of developing digital literacy skills in the classroom and using digital methods to open research to a wider audience. Iowa State and University of Iowa faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students, and members of the Ames community who are interested in learning more about digital scholarship and connecting with a growing community of practice are encouraged to attend. 

Symposium attendees will have opportunities throughout the day to connect with others interested in digital scholarship and to celebrate the panelists at the closing reception. Hors d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served.

Advance registration is required. Register today. Please bookmark the Symposium Guide and check back often for updates. Registration closes at 5 p.m., Monday, April 8, 2024.
