Apologies for cross postings.

The azaleas are popping, the redbuds are in their finest attire, and the dogwoods are lacy jewels at the edge of the woods. It must be spring in Chapel Hill! What a great reason to visit North Carolina in April. DigCCurr2007 is another excellent reason.  There are just a few seats left for DigCCurr2007, so register today! We will host approximately 100 speakers who will focus of what digital curators do and what they need to know. Please see the updated agenda at: http://www.ils.unc.edu/digccurr2007/program.html.
