Just in case these have slipped by you…
On June 4th and 5th, we’ll be holding the RLG Programs Annual Meeting. This is your chance to hear about the RLG Programs work agenda, and rub shoulders with RLG Programs staff — some of our OCLC Research colleagues will be on hand as well. Can’t come? We’ll be posting the audio and visuals for presentations on the website, so you can attend virtually (albeit in a time-delayed fashion).
Read about our Work Agenda here [pdf], and our framing Information Context here [pdf].
Can’t get enough of our Discovery to Delivery activities? Missed the last event and want to catch up on the conversation? We’re holding a discussion group at ALA in Washington, D.C. (Saturday, June 23rd, 1:30-3:30, Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill, Columbia B Room). We have two discussion areas.
The first part of the discussion will focus on network level tools and services, and we’ll be looking at WorldCat Local as an example of that. This will also give us an opportunity to share results from user studies done at the University of Washington, which should be of broad interest.
The second part of the conversation will be on progress made with the Registry of Copyright evidence, a small but important network level tool which can be useful in developing delivery services for digitized content.
We hope you will join us. Please register at http://www.oclc.org/info/ala/
Finally, our upcoming forum, “Digitization Matters,” is now open for registration. Scheduled for August 29th in association with the Society of American Archivists annual meeting in Chicago, this one-day event is shaped to push the envelope on increasing the scale of digitization of special collections. The agenda has more information: http://www.rlg.org/en/page.php?Page_ID=21037
This event is co-sponsored by RLG Programs, the Society of American Archivists, and the Newberry Library. The forum is open to all participants, and is free for RLG Program Partners.
