Digital Repositories workshop at the NYLA Annual Conference
Digital Repositories workshop at the NYLA Annual Conference, Wednesday, September 25, 2013, Niagara Falls, NY
Sponsor: Academic and Special Libraries Section
Half Day PM Program 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM
This workshop addresses key issues surrounding the creation, maintenance, and cultivation of digital repositories. Drawing on the latest literature, case studies, and personal experiences, speakers lead a discussion that covers planning the digital repository, selecting a methodology for its establishment, populating it with content, marketing it to the library's constituencies, and meeting the various challenges and questions along the way. Participants have the opportunity to bring their own experiences to bear, as well as engage in group discussions regarding how to get the most out of a digital repository.
Jim DelRosso is the Digital Projects Coordinator for Cornell University's Hospitality, Labor, and Management Library, where he is responsible for such projects as DigitalCommons@ILR, the digital repository for Cornell's ILR School. A digital librarian since 2009, Jim is also the President for the Upstate New York Chapter of the Special Libraries Association, and has served as the Communication & Social Media Chair for the SLA's Academic Division.
Amy Buckland is the eScholarship, ePublishing & Digitization Coordinator at McGill University Library, where she is responsible for scholarly communication, publishing initiatives, and making rare items from special collections available to the world through digitization. She loves information almost as much as Fluevog shoes, and thinks academic libraryland is ripe for a revolution. You can find her online at informingthoughts.com and in most social networks as Jambina.
The New York Library Association 2013 Conference and Trade Show is the largest state library association conference held on the East Coast. The Pre-Conference on Wednesday, September 25, 2013 provides an opportunity to learn about topics that require more time and attention than is possible in the standard conference program format. We believe you will find the programs offered to be enticing and exciting. Immerse yourself in a full day presentation or enjoy a half day program in the morning and/or afternoon. The 2013 conference will take place in Niagara Falls at the Conference and Event Center.
