About the conference

Discovering Collections, Discovering Communities is a collaborative conference series between The National Archives and Research Libraries UK. Now in its sixth year, DCDC brings together colleagues from across the archive, library, museum and academic sectors to explore shared opportunities, collective challenges, and to discuss how each sector can work more effectively with one another.

DCDC18 will consider the interplay between memory and transformation within heritage organisations and their wider impact on the cultural landscape. We will seek to examine how, through developing new points of entry to collections, archives, libraries, museums and galleries, we can work collaboratively with each other and academic organisations to meet strategic ambitions. Further, we will explore how to meaningfully engage with different audiences and communities whose far reaching interests can often have an equally transformational impact on our own professional cultures.


Connect and collaborate – networking events at DCDC18

As a cross-sectoral conference, collaboration is the overarching theme of the DCDC series. To help delegates make the most of the networking opportunities at the conference, we have arranged a number of events including a series of practical pre-conference workshops.

The Pre-Conference reception will be held at the internationally renowned Ikon Gallery on 19 November, and will feature a networking activity led by the Digitisation Networking Group led by Jisc, The National Archives and RLUK.

On 20 November we invite delegates to join us at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery for the main Conference Dinner, offering an excellent opportunity to meet fellow delegates and reflect on the day’s discussions.
