2020 Digital Directions


April 6-7, 2020
Tucson, Arizona


Join us in beautiful Tucson, Arizona, for Digital Directions 2020!  Guided by a faculty of national experts, you will gather with colleagues from institutions large and small for two days of instruction on good practices and practical strategies for the creation, curation, and use of digital collections. You’ll have opportunities to network with colleagues who have similar challenges and interact with faculty one-on-one while you gain a comprehensive introduction to digitization and digital preservation.
