The BCC Program Committee 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.
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.
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 we still encourage proposals in these topic areas, we also
invite community members 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 deadline to submit your proposals is May 28, 2021. The full Call for
Proposals is available at: https://bitcuratorconsortium.org/forum/#cfp
