heritage arena

<http://www.nedcc.org/owolnv/owol1.htm> " the Northeast Document
Conservation Center's excellent 2 day workshop on imaging and web
architecting for cultural institutions. With overlapping presenters and
events, this is a superb opportunity to learn about the converging interests
of archival and museum information specialists.

eligible for MCN Membership registration rates.
Balancing Museum Technology and Transformation
As a challenging economic year for all, especially those of us in the museum
and cultural heritage sector draws to a close, we want you to join us in
looking ahead to a brighter future. In keeping with our theme we've asked
our contributors to look at how the technology we're busy implementing is
changing the way we work, how our institutions are being transformed by
those technologies and how that transformation can be managed. We're
offering a program that is both diverse and comprehensive.
Workshops, Sessions and More
Whether you're trying to develop an Intellectual Property policy for your
institution, learn about the latest imaging technology from industry
leaders, or explore the possibilities of building integrated
library/museum/archival systems, this is the place to be. And while you
learn about the new technologies available, you can see them in our
tightly-focused Exhibition Hall.
Go Off the Wall and Online, too

Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) to offer something special: MCN 2003 is
