Workshop applications are now open! <https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScH3mHqtn8uMm0evwyUu3D9f8Q-aJeaecdNm_tXmDqDb3ViBg/viewform> There is no cost for the workshop, but we are limited in the number of attendees we can support. To ensure a good mix of library data staff, subject specialists, and functional experts we've established an application and selection process for the first workshop.

We encourage scholarship applications from students, new professionals, and members of underrepresented groups.
