Dear All,

I would like to let you know about an upcoming one-day conference in
Chicago that will, I'm sure, be well worth attending--either in person (for
those who can) or virtually (for everyone else): The 2013 NFAIS Annual
Humanities Roundtable. See below for information.

Best wishes,
Barbara Dobbs Mackenzie*    *

One of the few information industry events that focuses primarily on the
concerns of content providers and information professionals working in the
broad spectrum of the humanities, this is the time to register for the
forthcoming 2013 NFAIS Annual Humanities Roundtable. This one-day workshop
will be held in Chicago, Illinois, on Monday, September 30, 2013. Sponsors
include the American Theological Library Association, the Brook Center for
Music Research and Documentation, the Modern Language Association, the law
firm of Quarles & Brady and the Philosopher’s Information Center.

Today’s rapidly shifting digital information environment offers plenty of
opportunity to both content providers and information professionals for
adding value to their services and demonstrating the great return on
investment that those services provide to the student, scholar, and
professional. This year’s Roundtable offers a chance to learn from active
leaders in the field about projects in the digital humanities, content
enrichment and linked data, assessing usage and user behavior and much,
much more. Of particular interest this year, we’re thrilled to be featuring
legal experts discussing the long-term significance of recent court rulings
that may be impacting practices of both content providers and libraries!

*Focus:*  Partnerships and Best Practices: Critical Issues Impacting
Humanities Content Providers, Librarians and End Users

*Venue:*  Offices of Quarles & Brady, 300 N. LaSalle Street, Suite 4000,
Chicago, Illinois

*Date:* Monday, September 30, 2013

   American History & Culture, Newberry Library
   - Harriet E. Green, English and Digital Humanities Librarian, University
   of Illinois – Urbana-Champaign
