The Research Data Access and Preservation Association (RDAP) invites proposals for the program of its upcoming virtual summit on March 28-30 (Tuesday-Thursday), 2023. The RDAP Summit occurs as an affordable conference for research data support practitioners. The program includes keynotes, lightning talks, posters, and presentations. We will offer conference workshops for a small additional fee on Monday, March 27, 2023.

This year’s theme is “Building on Experience: Centering Communities in Data Creation and Access”. We encourage proposals that explore how you engage with and build communities in your data environment, how you have expanded on past successes, and how you are making data accessible for a wider range of communities.

RDAP presenters will have the opportunity to submit papers to be considered for a special issue with our partner, the Journal of eScience Librarianship (JeSLIB). Registration is free for speakers.

The proposal deadline is Friday, November 4. Decisions will be sent on Monday, November 28.

For more information, and to submit a proposal, please go here. Direct any questions to the Conference Committee Chairs, at rdapsummit@rdapassociation.org.

Abstract

Enabling those affected by war and tyranny to tell their stories, giving voice to the voiceless, empowers us all. Not only is being heard cathartic for those who have lost so much, it also helps us all to truly engage with their plight, deepening our desire to help in whatever ways we can. We all know that hundreds of thousands of people are near starving in Yemen or being butchered in places like Syria and Ukraine, but knowing is rarely enough. We need to feel, to identify, to realise that this could be us or our loved ones. To be linked to the thread of humanity that connects us all, whatever our country, creed or culture.

Yet until recently people’s heartfelt stories told on the ephemeral media of radio and TV were soon forgotten, their often unretrievable words lost in the past. Now thanks to big advances in digital technology such precious voices live on online and in numerous digitised archives around the globe, helping to inspire as well as inform us. The BBC’s veteran International Correspondent, Mike Thomson trawls through his own expansive news archives, to reveal some extraordinary voices from distant and often troubled places.

About Mike Thomson

Mike Thomson is a multi-award-winning International correspondent for the BBC. Over the last couple of decades his work has taken him to many of the world’s most troubled places. These have included Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, North Korea, Darfur, DR Congo, Sierra Leone, North Sinai, Colombia and the Central African Republic. He has undertaken acclaimed undercover investigative assignments in places such as Libya, Zimbabwe and Myanmar and covered some of the world’s biggest news events. The latter range from the wars in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan and the devastating Haiti earthquake to the election of several US presidents, the fall of Gaddafi and the death of Nelson Mandela.

In-person attendees are welcome to stay from 5:00 to 5:45 PM for refreshments, at the same location.

The Institute of Library and Museum Services (IMLS) awarded the University of Chicago Library a National Leadership Grant to support the hosting of national forums on GIS librarianship. Organized in collaboration with the University Consortium for Geographic Information Science (UCGIS), the project–GIS Librarians for Open Workflows, or GLOW–will focus on the workflows of librarians and library staff charged with supporting geographic information systems (GIS) and its use across diverse academic disciplines. The grant will support multiple in-person forums, workshops, and coordination of existing and new open educational resources (OERs).

Apply now here to attend the in-person forum that will take place December 7-9 (Wednesday-Friday), 2022, at the University of Chicago Library. The deadline for applications is Friday, October 7, and applicants will be notified of decisions by Friday, October 21.

Travel, lodging, and meal expenses will be reimbursed for the applicants selected to participate.

Leading the project is Cecilia Smith, Director of Digital Scholarship at the UChicago Library and former GIS and Maps Librarian, in collaboration with Diana Sinton, Senior Research Fellow at the UCGIS. The Library will host exchanges with librarians around their existing consulting and instructional workflows and practices, and their development and use of open educational resources (OERs). To provide meaningful relevance for the GIS librarian community as a whole, the forums will ground these exchanges in concrete examples from social justice, health, and infrastructure application areas. The two forums being planned will inform the production and deployment of the commonly duplicated workflows and activities undertaken within university library contexts, building on shared vocabularies and practices. A second focal area includes review of current and future digital platforms regularly used as portals for data search and dissemination.

The Institute of Museum and Library Services is the primary source of federal support for the nation’s libraries and museums. The IMLS National Leadership Grant for Libraries “support projects of national impact that address significant challenges and opportunities facing the library and archives fields and have the potential to advance theory and practice.”

Please direct questions about the GLOW Forums to Cecilia Smith, at ceciliasmith@uchicago.edu.
