ALCTS E.R. Discussion Group Meeting-- ALA Annual Tina Shrader 20 May 2003 14:57 UTC

The ALCTS Electronic Resources Discussion Group invites you to join us
for two presentations on Digital Preservation and Archiving.  The
meeting will be at the Delta Chelsea Hotel, Rosetti Room, on Saturday,
June 21, 2003 from 11:30am-1:00pm.

First, Allene Hayes of the Library of Congress will speak about LC's
digital archiving initiatives, such as the Minerva project.  In addition
to the opportunities and challenges involved in digital archiving and
preservation, Allene will discuss some of the cataloging and access
issues involved in digital preservation initiatives.

Then, Julie Grob of the University of Houston will take you on a brief
tour through three digital imaging projects created by Special
Collections and Archives at the University of Houston Libraries. She
will cover the nitty-gritty of setting up your own digital imaging
program for rare and unique materials. Learn about selecting materials
for digitization, deciding whether to scan or to photograph, tracking
metadata, designing a website, and promoting your finished project.

We look forward to two fascinating presentations followed by lively
discussion, so please join us!
