Symposium on digital preservation

Converting and Preserving the Scholarly Record
Assembly Hall
University at Albany
October 24, 2006

News of digitization projects for scholarly materials reaches us
almost daily.  How will digital resources remain accessible over
time? In order to discuss this and other questions, the University
at Albany is pleased to present our fall 2006 symposium: "Converting
and Preserving the Scholarly Record", Sponsored by University at
Albany, University Libraries, in conjunction with the College of
Computing and Information, Ebsco, ENY/ACRL and NYSHEI, October 24,
2006 in the Campus Center Assembly Hall.

While it is apparent that publishers, librarians and scholars are
all beginning to rely on the benefits of digital formats, practical
ways to address digital preservation must be developed and
implemented in time to support unbroken, continuing access of our
digital scholarship into perpetuity.

You are invited to participate in the symposium and study the issues
stemming from digitization activities in substantive and provocative
discussions during this day-long event.

Keynote speaker Jeffrey Horell of Dartmouth College will provide an
overview of the issues. John Saylor of Cornell, Dale Flecker of
Harvard University, Eileen Fenton of PORTICO, and Sarah Michalak of
the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will present issues
and emerging responses from areas where digitization is having
profound impact.

Registration is $35.00, including lunch and
parking for the day.
