Call for Proposals: 2022 Community Week, July 11-15

HathiTrust Community Week is back! Members asked and we listened, so we’ve reserved the week of July 11-15 for members to go deep on all things HathiTrust — from what their library is doing with the services and collection to what users are finding that enables their teaching, learning, and scholarship. HathiTrust Community Week is dedicated to giving space for members of our wider community to share projects, research, and workshops (and anything else related to HathiTrust) with other members of the community. 

This year, we invite participants to step outside the webinar box and consider other ways to bring people into the HathiTrust world — whether it’s building a joint collection in Collection Builder in real time, teaching a research 101 course using HathiTrust, or inviting in students and faculty to help illustrate the role of HathiTrust in teaching and learning. 

NOTE: The call for proposals is now closed and a full schedule with registration will be posted soon.

Presentations and attendance will be open to anyone affiliated with a member library, and we welcome new voices and perspectives. We are looking for different types of programming including lighting talks, presentations, panels, demonstrations, and hands-on activities. Typical length is 60 mins.

Member Librarians, Staff, Faculty, Students: We Want to Hear From You!

Is there an area of interest you want to investigate? Do you know a group of people tackling a similar problem using HathiTrust services and resources? Do you want to host a Collection Create-A-Thon with other interested members in Collection Builder? 

Are there professors using HathiTrust in their curriculum who might want to present about their experience? Researchers or students that have made special use of materials they’ve found through HathiTrust? After reading that, are you thinking “I want them to mention X! I want to talk about Y! ‘The People’ need to know about X and Y and HathiTrust!” Then we want you to tell us and the rest of the community!

Topics to consider include

  • Teaching and Learning

  • Cataloging/Metadata

  • Things to do with Data

  • Text and Data Mining

  • Collections

  • Non-English Languages

  • Ingest and Contribution

  • Rights and Copyright

But those areas are only meant to sharpen your mind. We welcome topics and ideas not represented above. So start thinking!
