Stanford University Libraries invites archives, library, and technology workers and those in related fields to self-nominate as participants for Lighting the Way: A National Forum on Archival Discovery and Delivery, funded by IMLS grant LG-35-19-0012-19. The forum event will take place over two and a half at Stanford University in Stanford, California from February 10-12, 2020, with approximately 50 participants. Grant funds will allow us to fund partial to full travel costs, meals during the event, and lodging for most participants.
The initial call for participation will be open from November 13 to December 15, 2019. The application form requests information about you, your responsibilities, and your work related to focus of the project. Our project team will be reviewing the nominations on a rolling basis, and will respond no later than January 10, 2020. Information gathered in the application form will be used to select participants for the Forum, to inform Forum planning, and to identify opportunities for the project team to follow up with you. Your responses will not be shared beyond the project team and its participant advisors.
