Winter Membership Special (Apply by January 31, 2019)

If your institution has been considering membership in the BitCurator Consortium but hasn’t quite been able to take the leap due to time or finances, or if your institution is curious about the community but needs additional context for what membership entails, you now have the opportunity to join the BCC at a reduced fee ($500) and experience all the benefits of membership (including some new ones)! This membership period will begin in January 2019 and last until July 2019, providing institutions with a seven-month opportunity to explore BCC’s treasure trove of educational resources, engage with our network of engaged professionals, and most importantly, take advantage of a brand new membership benefit: Born-Digital Workflow Consultation!
