NISO Virtual Conference

Images: Digitization and Preservation of Special Collections in Libraries, Museums, and Archives

Wednesday, June 14, 2017
11 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (Eastern)


This virtual conference will focus on a variety of practical concerns surrounding digitization efforts and long-term preservation of images in the digital environment. It will spotlight the International Image Interoperability Framework and similar initiatives in the ongoing digitization of special collections (such as maps, manuscripts, etc.) for purposes of scholarship. Are we achieving the goals established 20 years ago? What has been established by the community as appropriate guidelines and/or the best practices for these activities? In addition to images, new digital output (three-dimensional renderings, virtual exhibits, etc.) are becoming more commonplace. Is the institutional repository the right place to house such scholarship, or is there a new kind of space needed for such special collections?


Confirmed speakers include:

·      Edward M. Corrado (participating in his personal capacity), Associate University Librarian, Dudley Knox Library, Naval Post Graduate School

·      Tom Cramer, Chief Technology Strategist, Stanford University Libraries, and Stuart Snydman, Associate Director for Digital Strategies, Stanford University Libraries 

·      Chad Hutchens, Head, Digital Collections, University of Wyoming

·      Julia Corrin, University Archivist, Carnegie Mellon University

·      Chris Strasbaugh, Digital Resource Archivist and Curator, The Ohio State University
