Right after the official closing ceremony of the ISI 2017, there will be a satellite workshop on March 15, from 2-6 pm. The workshop is free of charge for ISI participants and will be held at the Berlin School of Library and Information Science. We invite short presentations on research projects, curricula and other experiences that highlight the relationship of Information Science and the Digital Humanities, a debate that has recently gained momentum (cf. e.g. Burghardt et al., 2015; Robinson et al., 2015; Sula, 2013).
