Save the date: May 21-23, 2009 Symposium at Reed College

Teaching with Digital Collections in the Liberal Arts Curriculum
Save the date: May 21-23, 2009
Reed College, Portland, Oregon

What does it take to launch a digital asset management system that improves access and helps integrate digital materials into the curriculum?

Through funding from the Keck and Booth Ferris Foundations, Reed College has been investigating this question in the arts and humanities curriculum. The culmination of this project will be a two-day symposium to be held on the Reed College campus.

We invite you to come together with your colleagues to learn and share your experiences working with digital collections in the liberal arts context. This event is recommended for instructional technologists, IT staff, librarians and library support staff, visual resources professionals, and anyone interested in support for teaching with digital collections, particularly images.

There is no conference fee, and the single-track event will feature:
  • A meet-and-greet dinner on Thursday (opening) night;
  • Light breakfast, lunch and dinner on Friday; and light breakfast on Saturday;
  • Two keynote guest speakers;
  • Three to five other presentations, including guest speakers as well as Reed staff members involved with the digital asset management program and CONTENTdm at Reed.
Registration information information will be available in January.
