Pacific: 7 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Mountain: 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Central: 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Eastern: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Preserving digital assets has become a part of everyday activities at libraries big and small, but for many it is an intimidating concept. While the tools and language may be different, the basic theories and philosophies are the same as what libraries have been doing for paper, parchment, magnetic media, and plastics. Beginning with assessment, we will consider digitization, description, management and preservation standards and best practices. This is an opportunity to see what how other institutions are achieving their goals as well as ask the questions that you were always too afraid to ask.

Moderators

Ian Bogus is the MacDonald Curator of Preservation at the University of Pennsylvania where he launched the Libraries’ first system-wide preservation and conservation program. He is provides leadership for the life-cycle management of physical and digital collections. Penn Libraries’ nascent digital repository is built on a Fedora/Hydra framework.

Roger Smith is the Director of the Digital Library Development Program (DLDP), developing procedures and workflow for library digital collections. UC San Diego Library Digital Collections are preserved in Chronopolis, a TRAC certified preservation environment. UC San Diego Library and Chronopolis are participants in the Digital Preservation Network (DPN) initiative.

What Is an e-Forum?

An ALCTS e-forum provides an opportunity for librarians to discuss matters of interest, led by a moderator, through the e-forum discussion list. The e-forum discussion list works like an email listserv: register your email address with the list, and then you will receive messages and communicate with other participants through an email discussion. Most e-forums last two to three days. Registration is necessary to participate, but it's free.

For information about upcoming e-forums, please visit http://www.ala.org/alcts/confevents/upcoming/e-forum

How to Register

You must register your email address to subscribe to or access an electronic discussion list on ALA's Mailing List Service. Once you have registered for one e-forum, you do not need to register again, unless you choose to leave the list. Find instructions for subscribing and unsubscribing online. (http://www.ala.org/alcts/confevents/upcoming/e-forum/sympa)

If you have any problems, please contact alcts-eforum-request@ala.org.
