Call for Proposals: Digital Frontiers 2013

Call for Proposals: Digital Frontiers 2013

The University of North Texas Digital Scholarship Co-Operative and UNT
Libraries invite proposals for Digital Frontiers 2013, a conference that
brings together the users and builders of digital resources for research
and education.

Digital libraries provide unprecedented access to materials, and this has
dramatically expanded the possibilities of primary source research in the
humanities and related fields.

We seek submissions of individual papers, fully-constituted panels,
birds-of-a-feather discussions, hands-on tutorials, or posters--all based
on the use of digital archives, social media, and digital tools for
humanities research.

We encourage contributions from anyone who creates or uses digital
collections, including scholars, educators, genealogists, archivists,
technologists, librarians, and students. The goals of this conference are
to bring a broad community of users together to share their work across
disciplinary and administrative boundaries, and to explore the value and
impact that digital resources have on education and research.

Possible Topics:

   - Specific ways digital libraries have changed the state of research
   - Digital tools and methods for conducting research
   - Using digital collections in the classroom
   - Using digital libraries for research on any humanities topic

Digital Frontiers is accepting proposals for:

   - Individual papers
   - Panels or Roundtables
   - Birds-of-a-Feather Discussions
   - Hands-on Tutorials & Workshops
   - Academic Posters
