Save the date for the Best Practices Exchange (Un)Conference, which will be held June 10-12, 2024 at the Sacramento State University Library in Sacramento, California.


Best Practices Exchange (BPE) is a community of practitioners who manage digital information that meets annually to share their experiences and have honest conversations about the work that we do. This conference is a great opportunity to share, question, and learn from colleagues across a spectrum of government, academic, and cultural organizations.


This year's theme is The Digital Life CycleHow do any of the various stages of the Digital Life Cycle fit into your everyday work or interests in born-digital and/or digitized materials? What are you excited or concerned about with regard to work done in these stages? What are you doing now to prepare for future challenges or opportunities? What about our current professional practices should we take forward into the future and what should be left behind? See the 2024 Conference website for more information.


Look for a call for proposals in early December 2023. More information will be shared on the BPE Website ( as the conference program is finalized.
