Digital Communities: The Evolving Interaction of Technology and Cultural Heritage
October 22, 2012
9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
at the Legislative Office Building
300 Capitol Avenue
The Connecticut Forum on Digital Initiatives brings together libraries, archives, museums, and cultural heritage institutions from around Connecticut and beyond to talk about the digital initiatives happening in our historic state. The Forum is a chance for the diverse voices within the cultural heritage sector to talk about ideas, projects and tools with which they are engaged.
The theme of this Forum is collaboration, and how working collaboratively can enhance a project and create communities of value. From simple collaborative collections to complex grant partnerships, by working together we can maximize our resources and create a greater impact. We will explore the impact of the Digital Humanities community on the Library, Archive and Museum community and discover new avenues of collaboration. So join us in building a better digital community that will move Connecticut forward.
Speakers from institutions including the Library of Congress, Yale University and the New York Public Library will cover issues just as diverse. Workshops will feature topics such as Digital Imaging Standards, Linked Data and Presentation Layers and speakers will look at emerging trends in digital humanities. Several successful collaborative projects underway in Connecticut will be highlighted.
Since we will be at the Legislative Office Building, we encourage you to invite your legislator (find your Legislator here) to stop by the Forum. Help raise awareness of the work that we do and the roles we play in our communities. For more ideas on how to raise awareness visit the AAM Advocacy page. We have created an informational page Connecticut Forum on Digital Initiatives to help explain what we do. Add your voice today!
