OCLC is bringing this popular event to the membership on the East Coast.
This year's Digital Forum will spotlight Convergence: Where Metadata and
Access Meet for Digital Discovery and Delivery. We will feature experts
from the museum, archival and library communities who will discuss
current projects and initiatives exploring creation of metadata for
digital discovery and delivery. Among the distinguished speakers are:

*	Dr. Youngok Choi, Assistant Professor, School of Library and
Information Science, The Catholic University of America 
*	Susan Chun, Principal, Cultural Heritage Consulting; Founder and
Project Lead at Steve.Museum 
*	Dr. Jennifer Goldbeck, Assistant Professor, University of
Maryland, College of Information Studies 
*	Taylor Surface, Director, Digital Content Management Services,
OCLC 
*	Kate Thiemer, ArchivesNext blog

Other presentations and panel discussions will highlight national
projects of significance relating to metadata, tagging of content, and
the convergence of new forms of delivery of digital collections to 21st
century learners. The Forum is designed to offer an intimate meeting
setting where participants can share knowledge and create networks with
other organizations. Join us for some small group discussion and
networking with your peers. This is an ideal educational opportunity for
librarians, archivists and museum staff who are charged with creating
digital access to collections.
