Apologies for cross postings


Dates:  Wednesday - Friday, August 5 - 7, 2009

Host:  Yale University, New Haven, CT


The Eastern CONTENTdm User Group is looking for individuals to serve on
panel discussions or to talk about their current CONTENTdm projects in a
virtual poster session at its upcoming user group meeting.


Panel Discussions

Currently, the programming committee is putting together panels on the
following topics:


- Metadata Decisions: How did you decide and evaluate a metadata scheme
for your digital project?

- EAD in CONTENTdm: What are some of the benefits and challenges to
including EAD finding aids in CONTENTdm?

- Workflow Decisions: How did you design your digitization project?


What were some of the lessons you learned regarding digitizing,
documenting, or working with CONTENTdm?

We are looking to find 3-4 people for each panel.  Each participant will
get 10-15 minutes to speak followed by a group discussion.


Virtual Poster Session

The programming committee is also seeking 5-6 individuals for a virtual
poster session at the meeting.  This would be an opportunity to showcase
a project or to seek advice from other users on a problem you are
facing.  Participants will have 5 minutes to explain their project or
issue to the entire user group before a break sessions to talk more in
depth about their project.  Participants can have a formal presentation
they would like to show during the breakout session or simply
demonstrate the project on their live site.


If you are interested in participating, please contact David Conners at
