The deadline for registration for DC-2014 has been *EXTENDED to 20
September 2014*. All you have to do to get the Early Registration price is
go to our registration page on the Conference website listed below and
follow the simple instructions. If you work in metadata, you won't want to
miss DC-2014.

*CONFERENCE DATES:* 8-11 October 2014
   AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center,
   University of Texas at Austin campus
   *Metadata Intersections: Bridging the Archipelago of Cultural Memory*

Metadata is fundamental in enabling ubiquitous access to cultural and
scientific resources through galleries, libraries, archives and museums
(GLAM). While fundamental, GLAM traditions in documentation and
organization lead to significant differences in both their languages of
description and domain practices. And yet, the push is on for radically
open cultural heritage data that bridges these differences as well as those
across the humanities and the natural sciences. DC-2014 will explore the
role of metadata in spanning the archipelago of siloed cultural memory in
an emerging context of linked access to data repositories as well as
repositories of cultural artifacts.

This year, the DCMI Annual Conference and Meeting of DCMI (DC-2014) is
being hosted by the Texas Digital Library and held in Austin on the
beautiful University of Texas campus. Four days of exciting sessions have
been planned. While early registration has been extended, please don't wait
until the last minute. The *Austin City Limits Music Festival* overlaps the
conference dates and hotel rooms will become increasingly scarce!

Won't you join us in Austin?
