Event: Access 2006 Conference, Ottawa, Oct. 11 - 14, 2006

This Canadian library technology conference includes a "Panel on National Digital Initiatives." The speakers/topics will be:
  • Toward a Canadian Digital Information Strategy - Susan Haigh, Library and Archives Canada
  • Canada's scientific infostructure: toward universal, seamless and permanent access to information for Canadian research and innovation. - Lucie Molgat, National Research Council, Canada Institute of Scientific and Technial Information
  • Canadian Initiative on Digital Libraries - Bill Maes, University Librarian, Dalhousie University
  • Alouette Canada - John Teskey, Director of Libraries, University of New Brunswick
There will also be talks on digital libraries in Europe, digital projects in Quebec, and one talk will be on DSpace.

There are several informative and entertaining speakers including Paul Miller of Talis. Although Paul does not speak on digitization, if you are attending this conference, I would highly recommend going to his talk. I guarantee you will walk away with useful information and a broadened perspective.
