Come join fellow librarians, archivists, records managers, and other information professionals as they share their experiences in managing and preserving digital state government information for public access. Bring examples of your successes, failures, and lessons learned to share with colleagues in facilitated exchange sessions. You will most certainly provide and take away something of value from this experience.

Exchange Session Topics include:
  • Repository Systems
  • Identification, Selection and Appraisal of Digital Assets
  • Collection of Digital Assets
  • Authentication of Digital Assets
  • Metadata
  • Resources/Workflows for Managing Digital Assets
  • Access to Archived Digital Assets
