Join us for the next free webinar on Friday, March 8, 2024, at 12:30 PM ET.  This webinar is open to all.

The March 8, 2024, webinar hosted by the Special Libraries Association Academic and Education Community and ACRL's EBSS Education Committee will feature Alberto Santiago Martínez: the digital scholarship coordinator at the Daniel Cosío Villegas library at El Colegio de México.  He has worked in this position for 15 years spearheading the development of the institution's academic digital ecosystem.  This includes the drafting of a strategic plan, implementation of Mexico's first hyrax digital repository, archivematica preservation system, a handle minting service, and a series of thematic digital collections which pull from this ecosystem dynamically.  He was also one of the founding members of Red HD, Mexico's digital humanities group.
