Indiana University (IU) (http://lair.indiana.edu/research/dlib/) and the
University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (UIUC)
(http://www.lis.uiuc.edu/gslis/degrees/cas_dl.html) invite you to a
workshop, "Developing a Digital Libraries Education Program," to be held
on Tuesday, June 7, from 8:30-5:00, at the Joint Conference on Digital
Libraries (JCDL) in Denver, Colorado.  IU and UIUC recently received
funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) to create
the first research-based, comprehensive master's-level and post-MLS
degrees to educate librarians for work in digital library programs in
libraries and archives.  Five other universities also received IMLS grants
to work on various aspects of education for digital librarianship.  This
workshop is the first of three annual events designed to bring together
the IMLS-grant recipients, digital library professionals, and faculty in
schools of library and information science to discuss issues and explore
solutions. The morning session will feature researchers from the
institutions that received IMLS funding, presenting project overviews and
status reports.  The afternoon will feature prominent digital library
professionals and library and information science faculty covering various
topics related to digital library education.

The early registration cost of the workshop is $140 for members of ACM,
SIGWEB, SIGIR, IEEE TCDL, ASIS&T, and ALA/MLA/SLA.  The cost for non
member is $175; early registration ends May 16. The late/on site cost of
registration is $190 and $225.  The workshop will accommodate up to 40
participants so please register early.  For more information and
