2011 Annual Meeting Update

We hope you enjoyed our session last week at ALA Annual. There are a couple of follow up items to post about:

  1. Presentations from the session ("It's all geek to me" on cloud/grid/hosted storage and the introduction to ArchiveMatica) are available in the "Recent Files" box in the navigation column on the right.

    We know that all of the speakers would be glad to discuss further any of their tools, so please feel free to contact them. Or, contact Amy Rudersdorf (amy.rudersdorf@ncdcr.gov) to get in touch with them for you.

    These presentations are only available to Digital Preservation Interest Group members through ALA Connect. To become a member, click on the green "join" box in the navigation column on the right.

    Notes from the Intellectual Access to Preservation Data Interest Group are also posted. Check out  http://connect.ala.org/node/137626

  2. We're still looking for a new co-chair for to serve from 2011 to 2013. This is a two-year appointment, starting July 1. The commitment is minimal and requires only submitting reports from sessions (assuming you are able to attend), assisting in the creation of session panels or identifying appropriate speakers. Please contact Amy Rudersdorf (amy.rudersdorf@ncdcr.gov) if you are interested in this opportunity.
