Libraries, Archives and Museums: Converging for Real
1:30 pm to 3:00 pm, US/Central
Our users ask for access to information unhampered by arbitrary boundaries between libraries, archives and museums. Yale, Princeton, the Smithsonian, the University of Edinburgh, and the Victoria and Albert Museum have been working at breaking down the walls between their collections. Each of these institutions strives to present a holistic view of all collections regardless of where they are housed or how they are managed. Come learn about what has worked and what has not.
Speakers: Meg Bellinger, Director of the Office of Digital Assets and Infrastructure, Yale University; John Scally, Director of University Collections, University of Edinburgh; Cathryn Goodwin, Manager, Collection Information and Access, Princeton University Art Museum; Moderator: Jennifer Schaffner, OCLC Research
