LISdocstudents is an unmoderated email discussion list for doctoral students in Library and Information Studies, working at any institution.

The purpose is to communicate with other doctoral students about shared issues, be they intellectual questions in the field, problems facing emerging academics on the path through graduate school and into academic careers, issues having to do with trends in higher ed and LIS as a discipline, or other topics that seem appropriate. Announcements are good too. Doctoral students in LIS are the main constituency of the list, but masters students, graduate students in other fields, and professors are invited to participate.

JCDL Doctoral Consortium

April 16, 2013

The ACM/IEEE Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL 2013) is sponsoring a Doctoral Consortium on July 22, 2013 for Ph.D. students from all over the world who are in the early phases of their dissertation work. Ideally, students should have written or be close to completing a thesis proposal, and be far enough away from finishing the thesis that they can make good use of feedback received during the consortium. See the complete CFP athttp://jcdl2013.org/doctoral-consortium.
