The mission of the DH/DS SIG is to stimulate a globally engaged DH/DS forum among IFLA communities for exploring, developing and exchanging ideas and best practices regarding DH/DS in the context of libraries’ and information service organization’s evolving missions.

This year, the fourth since the SIG’s establishment, please join us to reflect on our accomplishments and work together to form a vision and mission for the future. At this meeting we will engage with the feedback collected in the survey with the IFLA community. We will assess the SIG’s current organizational structure and have a discussion about the future direction of the SIG, whose review with the IFLA headquarters will take place in 2021. We will also explore such questions as: What are the next goals of the SIG? What are our priorities? What are the main themes for the next 2-3 years of conference planning? How do we remain relevant and aligned with IFLA’s strategic direction? Do we want to become a formal section, and why?

Please complete the survey above and consider joining us for this lively session. Your participation is important to the future of the DH/DS SIG.
