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?
