Could you pass the information below along to your respective SIG listservs if this is of interest? We believe that most SIGs could have some interested members for our Digital Liaisons program.

Subject: SIGDL Digital Liaisons

You are invited to participate in a Twitter chat hosted by the Association for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T) Special Interest Group for Digital Libraries (SIG DL)!

The chat will be thematically structured around what Digital Librarianship looks like in practice and how Digital Libraries contribute to the communities they serve.

This chat is designed as a mentoring opportunity for students and early-career information professionals to connect with mentors in the Digital Library community. You are invited to be a mentor or mentee and join in the conversation! No prior commitment is necessary- just tune in during the time frame listed below.

When: 13 October 2016 from 18:00-20:00 GMT
(Note that the timing is intended to accommodate international participants, with a focus on Europe as the ASIS&T Annual meeting will be taking place in Copenhagen, Denmark from October 14th-18th.)

Where: On Twitter using the hashtags #SIGDLChats

*  You don't have to do anything to sign up beforehand!
*  You DO need to have a Twitter handle!
*  You don't have to be a member of ASIS&T to participate in the Twitter chat (You do need to be a member to participate in our follow-up panel at the ASIS&T Annual Meeting)!

Participants will be invited to ask questions and join in discussion via Twitter as well as connect with mentors individually afterwards. In order to connect with a mentor please sign up next to their name in this spreadsheet: http://bit.ly/2dt90uS

Each mentor will have a maximum of three mentees.

For more information, please visit: https://www.asis.org/SIG/sigdl/Digital-Liaisons-2016.

We hope to see you on October 13th!
