Summer Institute for Humanities Data Curation
May 18-22, 2009

Data Curation Education Program,
Graduate School of Library and Information Science,
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

The Data Curation Education Program (DCEP) at the Graduate
School of Library and Information Science will hold a Summer
Institute for Humanities Data Curation at the University of Illinois
at Urbana-Champaign, from May 18 through 22.  The Institute
will be directed by Allen H. Renear, Associate Dean for
Research at GSLIS, and sessions will be conducted by leading
specialists in the various fields that are involved in the curation
of humanities data.

Data curation is the active and on-going management of
research data through its lifecycle of interest and usefulness to
scholarship, science, and education. With support from the
Institute of Museum and Library Services, GSLIS has been a
pioneer in the development of data curation education within
library and information science. Last year's institute focused on
data curation for science data. This year's workshop focuses on
data services and curation activities for humanities data,
particularly in academic libraries.

Topics to be covered include: metadata, text encoding, format
and encoding management, technical aspects of data repository
systems, day-to-day digital  preservation, support for tools and
applications, and resource requirements for a data curation
program that includes humanities data.

Participants will learn:

-- what skill sets, resources, and collaborations are necessary
to develop and implement a data curation program in an
academic library or research project.

-- the principles and best practices for implementing and doing
humanities data curation.

-- the components of a repository development plan (goals,
institutional commitment, responsibility, collection development
policy, preservation plan, data management plan).

A particular focus of this year's institute will be managing textual
data. Specific topics to be covered include: metadata, XML/TEI
text encoding, format and encoding management, institutional
repository systems, digital preservation, and management of
versions and provenance.

Our session leaders include leading figures in humanities data
curation, digital repositories, and humanities computing. Among
them:

Syd Bauman (North American Editor, Text Encoding Initiative),
Melissa Cragin (Project Coordinator, Data Curation Education
Program, GSLIS/UIUC), Julia Flanders (Director of the Brown
University Women Writers Project, Brown University Library.)
Carole Palmer (Director of the Center for Informatics Research
in Science and Scholarhip, GSLIS/UIUC), Dorothea Salo
(Digital Repository Librarian, University of Wisconsin-Madison),
Michael Sperberg-McQueen (Black Mesa Technologies), John
Unsworth (Dean, GSLIS/UIUC), John MacMullen
(GSLIS/UIUC), and other faculty from the University of Illinois.

An opening keynote will be presented by Lorcan Dempsey, Vice
President and Chief Strategist of OCLC.

The institute will run from Monday morning, May 18, through
noon Friday, May 22. Rooms have been reserved at the Hilton
Garden Inn and Homewood Suites in Champaign for Sunday,
May 18, through Thursday (night), May 21, 2009, ($119/night).
There will be shuttle service to and from campus. Thanks to
support from IMLS, no tuition will be charged for the institute. In
addition, a small number of lodging bursaries are available and
will be awarded based upon need.

We are accepting applications from practicing academic
librarians and other information professionals who want to learn
more about data curation services in academic libraries. Up to
three people from a single institution may apply. The Institute
will be limited to 24 participants.

DEADLINE:  We will begin evaluating applications on March 9
and will continue until all spaces are filled.  Please apply by that
date in order to be sure to receive full consideration.

Application Requirements: Please complete the form, which is
available at: https://illinois.edu/formBuilder/Secure?id=1017281

        Subject: DHSI: Graduate Student Colloquium - Call for Papers


Digital Humanities Summer Institute 2009
Graduate Student Colloquium
"Next Wave: New Researchers and the Future of the Digital Humanities"
June 9-12, 2009.

This year, a new graduate student element is being added to the DHSI.  
Graduate students attending the Institute are invited to participate  
in a colloquium entitled "Next Wave: New Researchers and the Future of  
the Digital Humanities". Abstracts are now being accepted for  
presentations focusing on all aspects of graduate student research  
attendant to the digital humanities, including but not limited to  
issues involving the electronic elements in the dissertation, the  
graduate student's role in established research projects, tool  
application and development, etc.

The Colloquium will take place over four days (Tuesday through Friday)  
during morning sessions prior to the start of classes. Each session  
will be comprised of four graduate student presentations demonstrating  
the incorporation of some aspect of the digital humanities into their  
research. Each presentation will be informal, 5-10 minutes in length,  
with time for Q&A at session's end.

We invite 200 word proposals for these presentations. Successful  
abstracts will focus on the individual student's role in digital  
humanities research and application, as opposed to general issues  
pertaining to the value of digital humanities to research. Presenters  
must currently be enrolled as MA or PhD students in an accredited  
graduate program. All Institute attendees will be invited to attend  
the colloquium sessions.

For more information and to submit abstracts, please contact Diane  
Jakacki [dkjakack-AT-uwaterloo.ca] or Cara Leitch [cmleitch-AT-uvic.ca].  
Abstracts will be blind vetted. Deadline for submissions is March 15,  
2009.
