July News Round-up

With July coming rapidly to a close, we have lots of milestones and events to celebrate in the MWDL community! July is National Ice Cream Month, so grab a cone and cool off with this news update.

MWDL Summer Conference

J. Willard Marriott Library at University of Utah hosted the MWDL Summer Conference on July 10-11. It was wonderful seeing so many people from members and the general community for two packed days of presentations, updates, bingo, library tours and networking. 

In case you weren’t able to join us, the proceedings will be online soon and we look forward to seeing you at the next meeting!

DPLA’s Executive Director, John Bracken, gave a live video update on July 11 facilitated by MWDL’s Director, Kinza Masood

Taskforces forming

Two MWDL taskforces are forming: Training, with Liz Woolcott of Utah State University as chair, and Metadata Application Profile, with Teresa Hebron of MWDL as chair. 

Thanks to all who volunteered to participate and we’re excited to work on these projects!

Buffalo Bill Center of the West
Salt Lake Community College
Utah State Archives

Thanks for these contributions! If you have new collections you’d like to have harvested, please let us know by filling out the harvest request form on our website.

Gearing up for fall

Please let us know if you have collections or events you’d like us to help promote in advance of the fall semester. Back to school is right around the corner!
