The Society of Ohio Archivists (SOA) will be hosting its Fall Symposium
during Archives Week in Dublin, Ohio, on Tuesday, October 11, 2005 from
9:30 am-3:30 pm.
This year's topic is Sustainability: Business Planning for Cultural
Many projects begin with a great idea and some grant funding. However,
even the most successful projects have trouble determining how to
once grant funding ends. In order to sustain these valuable efforts,
librarians, museums, archives, and historical societies need to plan for
sustainability at the beginning of projects.
In addition to financial sustainability, the symposium will involve
discussion of sustainability of digital assets. Developing a business
for sustainability will help bridge the gap from noble purpose to
case and help extend the life of the project.
Speakers include Liz Bishoff, former Vice President, OCLC Digital
Collection Services and Executive Director of Collaborative Digitization
Program and the Colorado Digitization Program. Liz has spoken
on collaborative digitization projects and consulted with many state-
organizations on various aspects of their collaborative digitization
