"It's All About Access"
Last Thursday June 26 I gave a talk at the 49th Annual RBMS Preconference in Los Angeles. The presentation was part of a plenary session called "It's All About Access." Tom Scheinfeldt, managing director of the Center for History and New Media, also spoke during this session. The CHNM is doing impressive work with digital object repositories.
By request I've made my presentation available in SlideShare. It's called "Metadata 2.0, Glocalization, and Being Where Their Eyes Are: What's So Special About Special Collections?" The RBMS organizers recorded the session and I believe it's their intention to make as many presentations as possible available from the RBMS/ALA site.
