Subject: Symposium: Converting and Preserving the Scholarly Record

News of digitization projects for scholarly materials reaches us almost daily.  How will digital resources remain accessible over time? In order to discuss this and other questions, the University at Albany is pleased to present our fall 2006 symposium: "Converting and Preserving the Scholarly Record", Sponsored by University at Albany, University Libraries, in conjunction with the College of Computing and Information, Ebsco, ENY/ACRL and NYSHEI, October 24, 2006 in the Campus Center Assembly Hall.
While it is apparent that publishers, librarians and scholars are all beginning to rely on the benefits of digital formats, practical ways to address digital preservation must be developed and implemented in time to support unbroken, continuing access of our digital scholarship into perpetuity.
You are invited to participate in the symposium and study the issues stemming from digitization activities in substantive and provocative discussions during this day-long event.  Keynote speaker Jeffrey Horell of Dartmouth College will provide an overview of the issues. John Saylor of Cornell, Dale Flecker of Harvard University, Eileen Fenton of PORTICO, and Sarah Michalak of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will present issues and emerging responses from areas where digitization is having profound impact.
"Converting and Preserving the Scholarly Record" will take place October 24, 2006 from 8:45 am to 4:15 pm in the Assembly Hall at the University at Albany.  Registration is $35.00, including lunch and parking for the day.
