Society of Ohio Archivists Annual Meeting
May 16, 2014Various - please see website for details
Would you like to make new connections with archivists and curators? Are you curious what other organizations are doing with digitized content? Does looking for grants give you heartburn? If so, then join the Society of Ohio Archivists (SOA) for our Annual Spring Conference on Friday, May 16, 2014 at the OCLC Conference Center in Dublin, Ohio.
This year’s theme, Building Capacity: Discovering Archival Collections in the 21st Century, will explore user interaction with rare and unique materials in our technology driven society. We are excited to announce that the plenary speaker is Chris Prom, Ph.D., Assistant University Archivist and Associate Professor of Library Administration at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Dr. Prom is a recognizes expert in digital archives. Panel sessions and posters will feature topics on community outreach through mobile digitization and behind-the-scenes tours, digital repository migration, local grants programs, descriptive workflows, and more. And remember the silent auction for scholarships! The most-coveted prize this year will surely be the Bowe Bell and Howell Sidekick scanner, valued at over $1,000.
For more information and to register, please visit SOA’s website at www.ohioarchivists.org. The conference fee is $40 for member, $60 for non-members and $30 for students and includes lunch.
