Virtual Faiths: Cooperative Digitization Projects

Monday, June 25, 2012
8:00 am to 10:00 am

US/Pacific (-7)

Digitization of collections of interdisciplinary and historical records related to a particular denomination or faith help researchers delve into contemporary questions of church and state boundaries, as well as the history of the development of local communities, regions and nations. Cooperative digitization and digital library projects that bring together these kinds of materials from different types of institutions that are geographically dispersed pose particular problems, including many copyright ownership questions that have not yet been answered. This program will feature several projects underway related to Methodism, Judaism and Catholicism. SPONSORED BY: ASCLA, American Theological Library Association (ATLA), Association of Jewish Libraries (AJL), Catholic Library Association (CLA) and EMIERT's Jewish Information Committee
