Call for participation: Lighting the Way working meeting

February 8, 2021
by Mark A. Matienzo

The deadline for submissions has been extended to March 15, 2021.

The Lighting the Way project team requests proposals from groups of around 3 to 6 participants to participate in a series of online meetings and collaborative activities over the course of six weeks, starting the week of April 19, 2021. Each working group will develop a written contribution of 5 to 10 pages, exploring topics related to improving archival discovery and delivery, intended for inclusion in a larger handbook compiled and published by the Lighting the Way project team.

To apply, please complete an application form, including a 250-word abstract of your proposed topic and potential group participants, no later than March 15, 2021. A PDF version of the application form is available for your reference. Participants will be notified by March 29, 2021 if selected to participate.

These contributions are intended to build on the work of Lighting the Way: A National Forum on Archival Discovery and Delivery, held at Stanford University in February 2020, which focused on information sharing and collaborative problem solving to improve discovery and delivery for archives and special collections. The Forum provided rich opportunities for discovering points of convergence, which can be explored in the Preliminary Report on the Forum. Topics generated by Forum participants may provide a starting point for proposals, but applicants are welcome to propose topics that are not represented in the Preliminary Report appendices.
