About SEDLS: This symposium is intended to provide an opportunity for librarians and other research data specialists to explore developments in the field of data librarianship. Topics covered may include:

- Using available tools for research data management

- Using data analysis and data visualization tools

- Data support for student research

- Addressing data literacy in the curriculum

In addition to learning about new work in the field, attendees will have the opportunity to network and build partnerships with colleagues. SEDLS is open to all who wish to attend, including LIS students, data managers, and data scientists, and those living outside of the Southeast region of the United States. 

We understand that videoconferencing is not optimized for universal design and accessibility. Please contact the conference organizers at [log in to unmask] as soon as possible if you anticipate wanting accessibility support, so that we can design an approach that fits as much of our community as possible.
