Heads up: RLG member forum

Put these dates on your calendar! August 7 and 8, 2006 will be the RLG member forum. The Forum will be held in Washington, DC, and we’re pleased that the Folger Shakespeare Library will be hosting the event.

The topic for the forum this time around is More, Better, Faster, Cheaper: The Economics of Descriptive Practice.

We’ll be showcasing projects that promote innovation in describing rare, unique and every day materials in economic ways. Rather than concentrating on particular approaches for specific material types, we’ll be looking at a range of approaches from different communities in an attempt to elevate the conversation to what we all have in common.

Do you know of a project that should be highlighted? Drop us a line.

The forum will be open to all RLG members (not sure if you are at member institution? check here). As we have more information available, we’ll post it here on our website.
