Registration Now Open For Free Webcast
To complement the recently released report in the New Roles for New Times series, “Digital Curation for Preservation, (PDF)” the Association of Research Libraries is offering a free and open webcast, “New Roles for Research Libraries: Digital Curation for Preservation.” The webcast [on April 7, 2011], will feature a reactor panel that will explore and expand on key findings and recommendations in the report. The deadline for registration is April 4, 2011.
Authored by Tyler Walters and Katherine Skinner, “Digital Curation for Preservation” looks at how libraries are developing new roles and services in the arena of digital curation for preservation. The authors consider a “promising set of new roles that libraries are currently carving out in the digital arena,” describing emerging strategies for libraries and librarians and highlighting collaborative approaches through a series of case studies of key programs and projects. They also provide helpful definitions and offer recommendations for libraries considering how best to make or expand their investments in digital curation. Issues and developments within and across the sciences and humanities are considered. This is the first report in the New Roles for New Times series.
April 7, 2011, from 1:00pm to 2:00pm EDT
