Volume 4, Issue 2 (2017) Proceedings from the 14th Annual Meeting of the Document Academy

Proceedings submissions are due October 31, 2017


DOCAM'17 called for papers and posters under the theme: Documentation: Informatics, Information Science, Library Science, and Museum Studies.

The Document Academy (DOCAM) was created to open up, bring back, and question Documentation Studies. What does DOCAM contribute to a world that values "Big Data" and "Analytics" other than a quaint fondness for books, musty letters, and antelopes? Are there clear lines between Documentation Studies and Information Science, Informatics, and Computer Science? Do we contribute to a greater understanding of the Internet of Things, the sensors, and the platforms that constitute them? A computer program is a document, but when it runs, is that also a document?

DOCAM is comfortable with the fact that Documentation Studies isn't a "discipline" in the traditional sense. Our departments are increasingly associated with subject matter "information," and yet our intra-school colleagues often do not value our work. How do we communicate the value of our perspective and help them to understand that the document perspective has something to offer to their greater understanding of their work and enterprise?

DOCAM'17 is hosted by the Department of Information and Library Science in the School of Informatics and Computing at the University of Indiana, in Bloomington, Indiana, U.S.A. on September 29-30, 2017. The conference co-chairs are Carol Choksy and Ron Day.
