Collaborative Digitization Interest Group Meeting Discussion/Interest group McCormick Place Convention Center
S505a
Description :

Join us for conversations about new and ongoing issues and opportunities related to collaborative digitization initiatives across a diverse array of consortia, libraries, archives, museums, and cultural heritage institutions. This meeting is open to all and will feature a main presentation and brief project updates from attendees.

UPDATE ON PRESENTATIONS:
The meeting will feature three presentations that spotlight collaborative digitization ventures at regional and national levels.

TRAIL: Technical Report Archive and Image Library (Mel DeSart, University of Washington): TRAIL was started in 2006 as a digitization project of the Greater Western Alliance, after engineering librarians lamented the poor access to technical report literature. Now a grassroots project run by (primarily) engineering and government documents across the country, TRAIL has digitized well over 40,000 technical reports – and it is still growing.

DALNET: Making Collaborative Digitization Projects Possible (Steven K. Bowers and Cathy Wolford, Detroit Area Library Network): DALNET is a consortium of multi-type libraries that supports various member institution digitization projects through collaboration and shared resources. This presentation will highlight specific examples of financial, technological, and collaborative networking resources, as well as a view of a non-traditional digitization project.

DPLA: Service Hubs and Content Hubs (Emily Gore, Digital Public Library of America): This presentation will feature the latest update on DPLA and explain how Service Hubs and Content Hubs are working, including the metadata clean-up going on within the Service Hubs. Find out how you can participate in DPLA.

Following the presentations and discussion, the Interest Group will elect a new chair. Interested parties may contact the current chair, Rhonda Marker, at rmarker@rci.rutgers.edu by Friday, 21 June 2013.

Preserving History: Establishing a National Latino Digital Archive Affiliate Event Palmer House Hilton
Chicago Room
Description :

With the advent of digital content we continue to see a pattern of certain information being privileged over another. To ensure that communities are represented in this environment in a manner that is respectful and equitable, it is imperative that targeted efforts be carried out. It is this backdrop that has informed the work of the Latino Digital Archive Group which is setting the stage for the development of a national Latino Digital Archive.

Attendees will be engaged in a dialog regarding the complexities of developing a national Latino Digital Archive. The presenters would like to highlight the progress of this project as well as the range of content the archive will contain. This digital resource will include digitized and digital born materials reflecting the Latino community’s own diverse voices as well as content that is not generally considered “Latino” but nonetheless represents issues that have shaped our experiences both individually and collectively – women’s movement, labor, immigration, education, law, policy, environmentalism, health, language, culture, music, and the arts. Realistically, this list could go on and on, but the point being that this new resource will attempt to narrow if not erase the information gap that exists between users and information. Attendees are invited to join this emerging community of practice that will continue to present us with the responsibility of documenting, preserving, and providing access to our communities’ stories.

TEDx and Libraries: A Perfect Partnership (ALA LibraryLab) Program McCormick Place Convention Center
S103d
Description :

Princeton Public Library has been an active member of the global TEDx community since 2009 and in that time they've hosted a variety of TEDx events for all ages. TEDx events are a great way to ignite engagement for the community you serve and encourage participation on all levels from the planning to the day of the event. TEDx events can be smaller monthly salons or large day-long conferences -- in other words, they can be easily scaled to suit your budget and space. Topics will include how to get a license, the planning process, lessons learned and much more.

We'll also hear from a team of librarians working on a new resource for making in libraries. In partnership with the American Library Association and Instructables, the Make It Project (developed and funded in coordination with ILEAD USA) seeks to bring the best maker projects from Instructables to librarians in order to further the adoption and adaption of maker culture into library culture. We seek to encourage librarians to embrace and promote the processes of exploration, creation, and hands-on learning in their communities. This brief introduction will explain the project and how you can get involved in it.

In Visibility: Race and Libraries Program McCormick Place Convention Center
S103d
Description :

This session focuses on the key question: where do we locate race in relation to librarianship--both as a scholarly discipline and a professional practice. Using an interdisciplinary framework, we discuss historical discourses of race and libraries, current trends and experiences, and what this all means for us as library and information workers. Salient questions that shape this session include: How is race visible and how is it invisible? What constitutes this in/visibility, on whose terms, and for what purpose? What are the stakes involved, on a personal, professional, institutional and societal level? This session is a combination of talk and workshop, and takes a praxis oriented approach to address what race means, how it is systematized and enacted, and the consequences it has for the library and information profession.
