Reporting from the Fourth Annual Digital Conference

The Digital Commonwealth is hosting the Fourth Annual Digital Conference and Vendor Fair today, March 25th, at the College of the Holy Cross. The State Library's blog was chosen as a host for reports on the keynote speakers and several breakout sessions.

The conference will feature two keynote speakers: Tom Clareson and Roy Tennant. Clareson will speak about fundraising for your digital collections and Tennant will speak about engaging users. Check back later today and tomorrow for reports from their talks.

Three breakout sessions will also be covered on the library's blog: From Artifact to Digital: Changes in Preservation Concerns; Fix it or Sleeve It? - Conservation Assessment and Preparation for Digitization; and Metadata II: Moving Forward with Metadata and XML. Look for reports from these sessions later today and tomorrow.
