Event: Digital Preservation, Library of Congress, June 25, 2007

I was meaning to post this event earlier this week, but something called work interfered. Anyway...

On Monday, June 25, 2007, starting at 10:00 am, the National Digital Information infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP) will hold "several informative and thought-provoking events" at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC. (Full event info.)

On tap:

  • Archiving the Web
  • Copyright Laws in the era of widespread use of digital technologies
  • Preservation of vital digital content

All three sound interesting; the first and the last are particularly of interest. The event is timed to coincide with the American Library Association's Annual Meeting in Washington (maybe I'll scoot over there if I have some time).

Fellow archivist 2.0 bloggers, such as the folks behind ArchivesNext and thesecretmirror.com, should take note.

I'll be down in DC on that Monday, but it depends on what's on ALA's schedule. Speaking of which, they're having an informal blogger get together sometime--can't remember where or when, but I think it's on the weekend. (Sorry, just tying up loose ends before we leave for our trip.) You should check the ALA meeting wiki and try to go. Hope to see you there!
