ALA Annual 2016: Digital Conversion Interest Group Seeks Presenters
The ALCTS PARS Digital Conversion Interest Group is still accepting proposals for speakers to present at the ALA Annual Conference (Orlando, FL) on Saturday June 25th, 2016 from 1:00-2:30 PM.
The Digital Conversion Interest Group provides a venue to discuss the preservation of audio, photographic, and moving image materials in both analog and digital formats and the digitization or reformatting of audio, photographic, print, and moving image materials for preservation and access.

The co-chairs are looking in particular for presentations surrounding the theme of ACCESS, including but not limited to the following:
* Examples of innovative methods for inviting user interaction with digitized collections
* Capturing and harnessing metadata in order to exhibit collections in a new way
* Examples of tools to collect and analyze user statistics
* Example collaborations between institutions to increase visibility of digitized collections
