Invitation to co-sponsor MAGIRT's 2012 Annual Program

Another item for our agenda on Monday: we have been invited to co-sponsor MAGIRT's program at 2012 Annual.

The Map and Geospatial Information Round Table (MAGIRT) is doing a program on map scanning for Annual 2012 entitled “The Nuts and Bolts of Map Scanning:  Building Your Map Scanning Toolbox”.  Our program will feature 3 speakers who will discuss the details unique to scanning maps, including project planning and costs, tools and equipment, scanning and metadata standards, access strategies, copyright issues and more.  Our target audience includes anyone who has maps or map collections they want to digitize, but don’t know where to start.  The program is tentatively scheduled for Sunday, June 24th from 1:30-3:30PM. 

Would ACRL RBMS be interested in cosponsoring our program in name only?  I know RBMS has cosponsored programs with MAGIRT in the past and hope you’ll be willing to do so again.  The program overview is attached.  Please let me know if you have any questions or would like any further information.

Thanks!
