Mid Michigan Digital Practitioners Fall Meeting - November 1, 2019 - Library of Michigan, Lansing MI



The MMDP Planning Group invites you to send your proposal for our November meeting. Proposals can be for presentations (45-60 minutes), 'birds-of-a-feather' discussion topics (20-30 minutes), demonstrations (10 minutes), lightning talks (5 minutes), or a poster. This is a great opportunity to reuse a poster shared at another conference! We welcome proposals from anyone, but are particularly interested in proposals from smaller institutions and students!

As always, we welcome proposals for demos, talks, or posters on a wide range of topics, including (but not limited to):



    Digital Preservation


    Electronic Records Management

    Storage Solutions

    Cataloging and Metadata (including cross-walks)

    Cloud Platforms


    Personal Digital Archiving


    Diversity and Inclusion

    Digital Curation Tools

    Digital Humanities

    Marketing Strategies

    Media Standards, Tools, and Formats

We will adjust our agenda to fit the submitted proposals or suggest changes to the presenters. If you have any questions, please send us an email.



The Planning Group will review the proposals and come up with an agenda for the MMDP meeting.

Please submit proposals before Friday, September 27 for the the MMDP Meeting on November 1, 2019.
Individuals with proposals chosen for inclusion in the Fall MMDP Meeting will be notified by the end of business on Friday, October 4.


REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN. Go to the event registration form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScLhl4uA41UtdtqncHansUjsVHIbilqZNFMJCt5cYMoT7Gi6g/viewform

REGISTRATION IS FREE. Lunch and beverages will be provided.

As with all of our meetings, we will bring together a wide range of professionals and students engaged in creating and curating digital collections in Michigan and the surrounding region, including librarians, archivists, museum curators, historians, students, educators, and more. The goal of this meeting will be to provide an opportunity for regular and committed attendees of MMDP to come together with new and interested professionals and make connections.



We will be holding an open forum at which anyone can bring questions to everyone attending. This is a great opportunity to bring a colleague or a friend, especially one who has never been to an MMDP meeting before. Draw on the expertise of fellow digital practitioners across the state and walk away with some tips to help you with a digital project. Whether it is digitization, metadata, intellectual property and rights management, writing an electronic records policy, web archiving, or working with specific tools like ContentDM, ArchivesSpace, MARCedit, and others, we are here to help.


Details about the fall meeting will be posted at our website, https://midmichdp.wordpress.com/. Also, follow us on twitter @midmichdp.

We look forward to seeing you at the Library of Michigan this fall!
