Call for Applicants: NEH Division of Preservation and Access Humanities Collections and Reference Resources Grants. Due July 20

The Division of Preservation and Access of the National Endowment for the Humanities will be accepting applications for grants in its Humanities Collections and Reference Resources program. These grants support projects to preserve and create intellectual access to such collections as books, journals, manuscript and archival materials, maps, still and moving images, sound recordings, art, and objects of material culture. Awards also support the creation of reference materials, online resources, and research tools of major importance to the humanities. Maximum awards are $350,000 for up to three years.

Eligible activities include:

• arranging and describing archival and manuscript collections;
• cataloging collections of printed works, photographs, recorded sound, moving images, art, and material culture;
• providing conservation treatment (including deacidification) for collections, leading to enhanced access;
• digitizing collections;
• preserving and improving access to born-digital sources;
• developing databases, virtual collections, or other electronic resources to codify information on a subject or to provide integrated access to selected humanities materials;

Call for Proposals: Educating for Wisdom in the 21st Century University. Due July 15

The 2011 Baylor Symposium on Faith and Culture will be held on the campus of Baylor University (Waco, Texas), October 27-29, on the topic "Educating for Wisdom in the 21st Century University."  More information available on the website:  http://www.baylor.edu/ifl/bsfc2011
While the pursuit and transmission of wisdom historically has been at the heart of education, some critics of the modern academy claim that wisdom has been relegated to second-class status among the university's other goals. Separated from other aims—like discovering new knowledge or imparting marketable skills to eventual job seekers—wisdom too often is seen as the sole province of a few disciplines like philosophy and theology, and not at the center of the entire university's work and purpose.

We invite scholars and teachers from across the disciplines, college and university administrators, and students (both undergraduate and graduate) to join us as we explore questions such as: what is the nature of wisdom; how do we encounter it in various disciplines; what is its role in shaping the purpose of knowledge, the end of education, and the mission of the university?

Proposals for individual papers, panel discussions, and responses to current books are welcome and may be submitted online until July 15, 2011. Please see our Web site for more details.

Call for Papers: A DC-SAM Workshop: Research and Best Practices in Linking Scientific Metadata. Due June 12

Call for Papers: A DC-SAM Workshop: Research and Best Practices in Linking Scientific Metadata
September 29, 2011, Berlin, Germany
To be held as part of the Theory and Practice in Digital Libraries (TPDL) Conference (September 25-29, 2011, Berlin, Germany)
Call for Work-in-Progress Papers
Describing scientific research data can be challenging due to their complexity and diversity. Standards for describing scientific datasets include not only entities responsible for data collection, processing, and distribution, but also information for data users to assess the relevancy to their data needs, quality of datasets, as well as technicalities regarding data file manipulation. Although scientific metadata schemes address a range of needs for data identification, quality assessment, verifiability, and dissemination, they do not fully address the challenges related to metadata generation and islands of information exist within and across scientific metadata records. One step towards addressing these challenges and problems is to have information scientists and domain scientists collaborate to evolve existing solutions in web-friendly ways. This one-day workshop will feature invited speakers from science and information science in the morning sessions and selected work-in-progress reports and interactive discussion in the afternoon.
The DC-SAM (DCMI Science and Metadata Community) workshop will include three parts: a morning session consists of invited speakers from both science and information science, a working lunch with focus group discussion, and an afternoon session for work-in-progress reports. This call is soliciting submissions of work-in-progress reports for the afternoon session. We are especially interested in, but not limited to, the following topics:
* Identification systems and standards for scientific metadata
* Scientific metadata architecture and models in Semantic Web
* Interoperable taxonomies and vocabularies in [biology, astronomy, etc.]
* Metadata linking mechanisms and technologies and their applications in scientific metadata
* Organizational and technical challenges in linking scientific metadata
The outcomes of this workshop are expected to be a collection of research papers/reports and a research agenda in this increasingly important area, which will be made available on DC-SAM community website.
Researchers are invited to submit reports for their projects relevant to the theme of this workshop, which are either work in progress or completed. The work-in-progress papers should be no more than six (6) pages, single spaced, (approximately 3,000 words including abstract and references). The submission should include the following components:
* Title of the paper
* Author(s) and affiliations
* Email addresses of authors
* Project website
* Abstract
* Tags or keywords
* Body of paper
* References cited
The papers will be reviewed by the workshop program committee and selected based on originality, coherence, clarity, and appropriateness for the workshop. Each selected paper will be given a 15-minute slot for oral presentation.
Important dates:
* Deadline for submitting papers: June 12, 2011, midnight (your local time)
* Notification of acceptance: June 30, 2011
* Final version of accepted papers: August 15, 2011
Please submit your paper to dc.sam.workshop@gmail.com. All inquiries and questions can be sent to the same email address. A copy of this call can be found on the workshop website http://eslib.ischool.syr.edu/SAM/. Information about the workshop will be updated as it becomes available.

Call for Papers
15th Conference of Atmospheric Science Librarians International (ASLI) 
Technology & the Changing Nature of Science Librarianship
25–26 January 2012
New Orleans, Louisiana

Over the last three decades, advances in technology have wrought groundbreaking changes across nearly every imaginable field and discipline.  From media to medicine, engineering to the humanities, technology has changed the way we communicate, explore, research, and learn.  The field of science librarianship has not been immune to these changes, and has itself transformed over the past several years into a field burgeoning with new dynamism, opportunity, and, yes, uncertainty.
On January 25-26, 2012, the Atmospheric Sciences Librarians International (ASLI) will meet to explore these changes during their Annual Meeting, to be held in the historic city of New Orleans, Louisiana. We invite proposals for papers describing the ways in which librarians and information professionals working in the atmospheric and geosciences are working in new ways to support the information and research needs of their communities; how we’ve seen our roles change in the wake of recent technological developments; and what we imagine to be the new frontiers of our profession.  We also welcome proposals for panels and themed sessions.
Submissions should include full contact information, a title, and brief abstract of less than 250 words.  The now-annual “Technology Tools and Tips” session will be repeated, allowing anyone who is using a technology – old or new – to participate in this ‘lightning round’ session, consisting of back-to-back 5-minute talks.  Proposals from students in the atmospheric, library, or information sciences are particularly welcomed.
Please submit proposals to ASLI Chair-elect:
