The theme for JCDL 2012 is #sharing #linking #using #preserving. Digital libraries, under a variety of names and modalities, are often part of the every day web experience. The challenge is how digital libraries can enhance user experience through providing stability in changing information environment, breaking down information silos, integrating into accepted practices of the web, and providing a range of access and services to resources across the web, both to human and machine users.

Conference: Project Academic Makeover: Transforming Conferences, Publishing, the Profession

We all know that you cannot change the message without changing the medium. We all know that changing the medium inevitably changes the message. HASTAC’s fifth international conference, hosted this year by the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, December 1-3, practices what it preaches, experimenting with an array of new forms and formats designed not just to discuss “Digital Scholarly Communication” but to explore how each of those three terms–digital, scholarly, communication–changes the others in ways that presage powerful new possibilities for higher education (both in the academy and for the general public).

The second section will consist of eight to twelve chapters focused on research methodology. The third section will include  eight to twelve short vision statements, modeled after the NEH white paper genre, which offer several paths for exploring interdisciplinary trajectories between rhetorical studies and the digital humanities.
