2nd Digital Archives for Science & Engineering Resources Summit

Mar 9, 2005 by

The ASIST will be presenting the Second Digital Archives for Science & Engineering Resources Summit (DASER-2) at the University of Maryland, April 29th to May 1st 2005.

The Summit will examine new issues and challenges related to digital archives and Science-Technology-Medicine (STM)publishing. This conference will explore issues surrounding digital libraries, institutional repositories and open access publishing, such as:

  • Impact of OA on the future of STM libraries;
  • Institutional repository models: what works and what doesn’t;
  • Publisher-library collaboration strategies, now and in the near
  • Institutional repository object issues–theses, datasets, learning
    objects, etc.;
  • User needs and patterns related to digital libraries.

This conference will offer participants a number of unique features. Break-out sessions will be offered after each panel, where participants will have the choice of visiting one or another speaker in a more informal atmosphere-to ask further questions, discuss collaborations, share anecdotes, and to develop strategies with their fellow participants. There are no parallel sessions so you will be able to hear each speaker. In addition, we will have a number of participants who will be blogging during the conference. This information should supplement your own notes and provide further perspectives on the conference.
