You've been hearing a lot about blockchain technology. What is it? How can
it be used by libraries and archives? Explore the possibilities with notable
experts in the information professions, business, government, and urban
planning during the Blockchain National Forum.


Date: Monday, August 6, 2018

Time: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific Time

Livestream Link:  <https://livestream.com/accounts/20480259/events/8179548>


Topics for discussion include urban planning/smart cities, enhanced
metadata, standards, legal issues, community-based collections, civic data,
partnerships, credentials, and provenance. Please visit the Blockchain
Technology blog <https://ischoolblogs.sjsu.edu/blockchains/national-forum/>
for the presentation schedule and speaker list. 


The goal of this free forum, sponsored by the San Jose State University
School of Information and a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library
Services, is to discuss and make recommendations about the future uses of
blockchain technology within the information professions. The results of the
forum will be the basis for a white paper submitted to IMLS and distributed
to information communities.


This project is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum
and Library Services - LG-98-17-0209-17
<https://www.imls.gov/grants/awarded/LG-98-17-0209-17> . The views,
findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed do not necessarily
