#BUDSC18 will bring together a community of practitioners–faculty, researchers, librarians, artists, educational technologists, students, administrators, and others–committed to promoting access to and through digital scholarship. We consider “access” in the broadest possible terms: accessible formats and technologies, access through universal design for learning, access to a mode of expression, access to stories that might not otherwise be heard or that might be lost over time, access to understanding and knowledge once considered beyond reach.
We are committed to providing an environment where all participants feel safe, included, and comfortable at the conference.

For driving directions and information on nearby bus and train stations, airport shuttles and rental cars, please refer to Bucknell University’s directions to Bucknell webpage.
If you are flying in for the conference, there are four airports in the area. Williamsport is about 30 minutes from Lewisburg but has fewer flights. The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, Harrisburg and State College airports are one hour away from Lewisburg but have a larger selection of flights. It’s worth comparing prices at the different airports as you can often find very good deals by flying in to one airport and out of another one.

In partnership with Bucknell University’s Classics Department, Women’s Work is an exhibition that reexamines the traditional power structures found in classical tales. This group of artists explores agency, power, the gaze and desire, and the act of reading and responding. Classical texts such as Daedalion, the tale of Cupid and Psyche, store of Diana and Actaeon, and The Athenian Woman: An Iconographic Handbook and more are reinterpreted by contemporary book artists. In keeping with the inspiration of classical texts, the exhibition will feature contemporary illustrations from Antigonick, the first year common reading for Bucknell’s class of 2020 Along with questioning the values traditionally placed on women’s work, viewers will leave with a new understanding of what a book can be.Website
