This summer we had an incredibly successful annual conference in Milwaukee, WI. During the conference, SIGDOC leadership engaged the community in a series of listening sessions. We wanted to hear from attendees and SIGDOC members about how the organization is working and how can it better meet your needs. We learned an incredible amount from the open and honest conversations at that event. I’m excited to share that feedback with all of you soon.

We need your help!

We are expanding these efforts to learn more from the community at large. We’re asking questions like: Who is SIGDOC? What should our scholarly contributions be? How can our leadership be responsive and inclusive?

We need your voice! Please take a few minutes to complete this questionnaire. All answers are anonymous.


If you would like to talk with me directly or would like a response to your feedback please email me directly ( You can also reach out to Kristen Moore, Secretary/Treasurer (

Keep an eye out!

In the next few weeks, we’ll have several key announcements, including:
CFP for SIGDOC 19 in Portland, OR
Call for nominations for elections
2019 Grant proposal CFP

So stay tuned and thanks for taking the time to share with us!
