From Rachel Mattson, who’ll be visiting us in class in late November:
I’m getting in touch with an opportunity for the developers and software engineers among you: a chance to attend the annual conference of The Association of Moving Image Archivists (AMIA) with support from the Digital Library Federation.
The award, which includes up to $1,250 in travel funding as well as registration, will go to one software development professional from the DLF community. The ideal applicant:
- Seeks more exposure to trends in stewarding digital audiovisual collections.
- Would not typically attend the conference, but can envision and articulate a connection with their work.
- Sees great value in building a dynamic and diverse peer network.
- Is interested in participating in the AMIA+DLF Hack Day on November 28, 2018.
- Is enthusiastic about collaborating with preservation professionals who have varying levels of technical expertise.
- Is affiliated with a DLF member institution.
The Association of Moving Image Archivists Conference will take place in Portland, Oregon, November 28-December 1, 2018, and we are pleased to partner with them once again in sponsoring the fifth annual DLF/AMIA Hack Day, bringing together collections practitioners and managers with developers and engineers for a day of collaboration.
Please share with anyone who may be interested in this award! The deadline to apply is September 14th.
