RLUK’s Digital Shift Forum brings together colleagues from across the information, research, cultural and heritage communities, and third and commercial sectors, to discuss the future of the digital shift in collections, services, and audiences.
The series aims to promote cross-sector discussion and debate, to enable knowledge exchange, and inspire collaborative endeavour across sectors and communities, for the benefit of RLUK members and the wider research and information management communities.
The Digital Shift Forum is open to all, and you do not need to belong to an RLUK member institution to attend or participate.
Realising a vision for the digital shift: RLUK’s Digital Shift Manifesto 2 years on
22 June 2022, 14.00-16.00 BST
In May 2020, RLUK launched its digital shift manifesto. The manifesto provided an ambitious vision for the research library community regarding the ongoing digital shift in its collections, spaces, stakeholder relations, and skills.
Although envisaged and developed before Covid-19, the launch and implementation of the manifesto coincided with the pandemic. We’ve experienced and learnt a lot during this time.
In this interactive and discursive symposium, the current members of RLUK’s digital shift working group will reflect on the ambitions of the manifesto and the future challenges and opportunities facing the community around the digital shift. How can we build on the manifesto’s vision, its success over the last two years, and seize our collective learning from the Covid-19 pandemic? The symposium will also include contributions from those colleagues who originally contributed to manifesto’s creation, and colleagues who have used the manifesto in their work.
