As productive and fun as it was, AMICAL 2016 is over. Our next annual Conference, which will take place in 2017, will be hosted by the American College of Thessaloniki.
Librarians, technologists, and faculty at AMICAL institutions: this is your conference.
Join us May 12–14 to explore how recent trends in technology, libraries and higher education inform practice at our American-international universities.
This year’s program will have a special focus on “Libraries and digital initiatives.” Libraries, scholarship and pedagogy are all becoming increasingly digital, even — at a slower but increasing pace — in the humanities. What does this mean for librarians, technologists and faculty working with students in the international liberal arts institutions of AMICAL?
The AMICAL 2016 program will confront this question, while giving special focus to how libraries can be active partners not only in curriculum-integrated digital collections, but also in digital scholarship and digital pedagogy. Invited speakers will inspire and provoke us, and AMICAL members will share their own expertise and questions as we grapple with digital initiatives and other issues shared across our consortium.
