Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,

Mehrfachempfang bitte ich zu entschuldigen zu folgender Veranstaltung mit
Call for Papers - gerne möchte ich Sie darauf hinweisen:

*IFLA Satellite Meeting 2017 in Berlin on August 15 - 17*

Digital Humanities is widely understood to mean the use of computer-aided
and data-driven research methods and techniques in both the arts and
humanities. Some examples of this are critical editions, lexicographical
projects, as well as the historical reception of large-scale collections,
whether of visual objects or literary textual corpora. But intrinsic to the
digitally-enabled arts and humanities are the holdings and collections
offered up to researchers by libraries and other cultural heritage and
memory institutions. In addition academic libraries also have an
integrating role to play between the researcher, the interested public and
the collections not only of libraries, but also of museums and archives
especially, where strong regional cooperation or collaborations across
borders have been established. Essential to this for this role are services
that present appropriately curated digitized materials and provide access
to them.

Such materials, as well as researchers’ work based on them, are
increasingly available also to a broader public, examples of this are
exhibitions of mediaeval manuscripts and early printed books, as well as
archaeological or historical showcases. Visitors to cultural heritage
institutions are able to interact with such materials, for enjoyment,
learning and research. Directly through university outreach and indirectly
via collaboration with memory institutions, the digital humanities also
enable citizen science. The promise of an increasing convergence of
interests between researchers and citizens, based on a shared digital
culture, is being fulfilled through the active and mutual partnership
between researchers, galleries, libraries, archives and museums (GLAMs).

The IFLA Standing Committee “Academic and Research Libraries” (IFLA SC ARL)
is the organizer of the satellite meeting together with:

• BBAW - The Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities Berlin

• DARIAH - Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities in

• DINI - Deutsche Initiative für Netzwerk-Information/German Initiative for
Network Information

• LIBER - Ligue des Bibliothèques Européennes de Recherche – Association of
European Research Libraries

• Library of the Humboldt-University Berlin.

The conference take place from August 15 to 17 in Berlin. The both hosting
institutions are the Library of the Humboldt-University Berlin and the
Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities Berlin.


This three-day international conference will bring together notable
cultural heritage, research and infrastructure organizations, as well as
acclaimed keynote speakers in the field. The event will explore and discuss
the above themes with the aim of enriching and cementing the links between
research, the public and memory institutions, further defining the critical
role of libraries in the process, supporting open data in the humanities
and understanding better how to create new and sophisticated interactions
with the digital public.
