If you see that registration has been filled, please return to this page to sign up on the waitlist.

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 data librarians situated outside the Midwest. MDLS 2017 is co-sponsored by Purdue University Libraries and IUPUI University Library.

Feel free to contact us at, if you have any questions about registration, scholarships, or other event details.

*Due to our generous donors, we are able to offer a small stipend available for up to 5 students to subsidize the costs of attending.
