Save the date for the 2009 OCLC Digital Forum West

OCLC Western
CED683C78EB2FF477D2A02BCDA23DA4ED95712E3B7FF43&>  is pleased to present
the fifth annual OCLC Digital Forum West
CED683C78EB2FF477D2A02BCDA23DA4ED95712E3B7FF43&>  on September 16-17,
2009 in Los Angeles, California at the Getty Research Institute. This
year's forum will focus on Convergence: Where Metadata and Access Meet
for Digital Discovery and Delivery. 


The forum will feature national experts from the archival, museum and
library communities who will discuss current projects and initiatives
exploring creation of metadata for digital discovery and delivery. Three
of these distinguished presenters include:


*         Anne J. Gilliland (keynote speaker), Professor, Information
Studies & Moving Image Archive Studies and Chair of the UCLA Department
of Information Studies. Ms. Gilliland also serves as Director of the
Center for Information as Evidence. 

*         Maureen Whalen, Associate General Counsel for the J. Paul
Getty Trust, who will speak on the balance between rights of
organizations and users. 

*         Kristine Brancolini, Dean of University Libraries, Loyola
Marymount University. 


Other presentations and panel discussions will highlight national
projects of significance relating to metadata, tagging of content and
the convergence of new forms of delivery of digital collections to 21st
century learners. 


The forum is designed to offer a smaller and more intimate meeting
setting where participants can share knowledge and create networks with
other organizations. Join us for some small group discussions on the
terrace at the Getty. It is an ideal educational opportunity for
librarians, archivists and museum staff who are charged with creating
digital access to collections. 


So please make your plans now to join your colleagues at this
prestigious national event. For more information about the Digital Forum
West and to register, please visit the OCLC Western Web page
