Re: [ARSCLIST] MCN 2008 - Registration is Open!

With apologies - the Museum Computer Network has posted announcements to ARSCLIST in the past, but the announcement below should certainly have included our organization's name in full.

Conference announcements are periodically sent to listservs and individuals in the technology, preservation, and cultural heritage communities.

** About the Museum Computer Network

Founded in 1967, MCN is a nonprofit organization with members representing a wide range of information professionals from hundreds of museums and cultural heritage institutions in the United States and around the world. MCN helps museum information professionals and people interested in technology in the cultural heritage community seek out and share ideas and information through a wide range of activities, including an annual conference, special interest groups, website, and other outstanding resources such as the new MCN Project Registry at MuseTechCentral (http://musetechcentral.org/)

Mission: The Museum Computer Network (MCN) supports the greater museum community by providing continuing opportunities to explore, implement, and disseminate new technologies and best practices in the field.
