Announcement: THATCamp Publishing 2011

THATCamp Publishing 2011
Sunday, October 30, 2011 (preceding 2011 DLF Forum)
Hyatt Regency Baltimore

Please join us for the first ever unconference dedicated to new models for publishing!  THATCamp (The Humanities and Technology Camp) Publishing 2011 will be held Sunday, October 30, 2011, just before the 2011 Digital Library Federation Forum.

New structures, tools, and services for scholarly publishing require new discussion venues and the development of new communities to nurture these discussions.  THATCamp Publishing represents just such an experiment in community development. By creating a meeting place that brings together colleagues from libraries, publishing, museums, archives, and digital humanities centers, we hope to stimulate blue-sky thinking and pragmatic skill sharing in support of new forms of scholarly communication. To this end, the unconference is open to publishers, librarians, faculty and student scholars, archivists, museum professionals, interested amateurs, technologists, administrators, and funders from the nonprofit and for-profit sectors — any and all who want to advance scholarly publishing in and for a digital age.
