Digital Commons’ Event Communities let organizers easily put together conferences, colloquia, speaker series, and other campus events. Event Communities can be used not only to archive the papers and presentations from an event, but also to manage the conference, from the call for papers all the way through the review process to publication of papers.

Below you will find instructions, examples, and materials to help you with a wide-variety of event management needs—from developing conference workflows, to embedding multimedia to understanding how the library can support conference scholarship. Our reference guides include set-up forms and other materials. A list of all conferences and events can be found here.
