April 24, Categories for the Description of Works of Art (CDWA) (10-11
am or 2-3 pm MT)

This one-hour session explores Categories for the Description of Works
of Art (CDWA), a rich metadata schema that describes art and other
cultural heritage resources.


May 15, Introduction to Mark up Languages (10-11 am or 2-3 pm MT)

Did you know that the term "markup" has actually been around for
centuries? It is historically a publishing term, where early original
manuscripts were "marked up" in preparation for printing. What does
markup mean in this present technical age? Come decode the coding of
markup languages like SGML, HTML, CSS, and XML. More importantly, learn
about their impact on library and patron services. No "techie"
experience required!



May 12, Analog-to-Digital Video Migration and All That Goes With It: Who
does What, When, Where and How? BCR - Aurora, Colorado offices (9:00 am
-4:00pm MT)  

Whether you're the custodian of an enormous moving image library, a few
shelves of videotapes or something in between, digitization is probably
on your horizon if not already on your plate. Technology matters of
course, but so does workflow and your role in it. This workshop
condenses the lifecycle of a typical analog-to-digital conversion
project into one workshop day so that you can get a feel for the
workflows involved, ask technology questions along the way, and consider
a migration project plan that will work for you and your stakeholders.
