In addition to the many great sessions focusing on digital preservation
issues, attendees at this year's conference will also have the opportunity
to attend these informative, hands-on workshops:

The Nuts and Bolts of Building a Digital Collection for the Whole Museum.
Cataloging Cultural Objects Bootcamp
Managing a Digitization Project
Content Management Strategies and Systems

Full workshop descriptions are available at

Immediately preceding MCN and in the same venue, NEDCC will present the
newest in their series of acclaimed two-day conferences, The Persistence of
Memory: Stewardship of Digital Assets. Starting Tuesday with IMLS former
director, Dr. Robert S. Martin's keynote, and running right up until our
opening reception in the Vendor's Exhibition Hall on Wednesday evening, this
conference will be a great introduction for MCN's two and one-half day
program. The timing and proximity of these two offerings is no coincidence -
we want to make it easy for you to register for both programs while you're
here!  The full NEDCC program and registration information is available at

So come to Boston this November, be a part of MCN's 33rd Annual Conference
at the world famous Omni Parker House, in the heart of the old town. Join us
in Boston where academies and institutions of higher learning are dedicated
to creating and preserving knowledge, and passing it along into the future.
You won't want to miss out!
