The Upper Midwest Digital Collections Conference and the Minnesota Digital Library Annual Meeting will be held jointly November 5-6, 2020.
Our two conferences share the same goals of providing an opportunity to connect with colleagues, share projects, and learn from each other, with the added benefit of additional cross-pollination between two different groups with many affinities. Programming provided will appeal to digital practitioners of many stripes, and allow us to showcase the best of what is happening with digital collections right now.
This year it will be an all-virtual event!
Stay tuned for more information, as the Call for Proposals will open soon! Conference hashtags are #UMDCC20 and #mndiglib2020.
