An unconference for data and librarians.

MDLS 2020 will be hosted virtually

MDLS 2021 will be hosted by the University of Wisconsin – Madison

About

What

The Midwest Data Librarian Symposium (MDLS) is intended to enable Midwestern librarians who work with research data management issues the chance to network; however, it is open to all who wish to attend, including future “data librarians” and those situated outside the Midwest.

MDLS’s goal of providing low-cost networking and educational opportunities has inspired two “sister events” in 2018: Mountain West Data Librarian Symposium and South East Data Librarian Symposium.

When and Where

MDLS is held in October and the location changes every year. MDLS 2020 will be hosted virtually on October 14-16th, 2020. MDLS 2021 will be hosted by University of Wisconsin-Madison and further information will be forthcoming.
