OCLC's Digital Forum East 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.
The Forum is designed to
offer an intimate meeting setting where participants can share knowledge and
create networks with other
organizations. This is an ideal educational
opportunity for librarians, archivists and museum staff who are charged with
creating digital access to collections.
