**Apologies for cross posting**
In 2023, based on feedback from a recent survey of members and attendees, we are switching things up a bit! This year’s program includes two virtual two-day events: our reinvented Technology Summit, and the ever-popular Humanities Roundtable; and two four-hour virtual conferences — on Accessibility, and Metadata and Discovery: Quality is Key. Registration for each event is $190 for members or $255 for non-members and, if you register for all four events, the cost is just $610 or $815 respectively — a savings of almost 20% compared with registering for each event individually!
We’ll be sharing more information about the program and speakers nearer the time, but we hope the brief descriptions below will whet your appetite to join us at these four important events:
March 29, 2023, 12.00pm - 4.00pm Eastern Time (US/Canada)
This virtual conference will cover the perspectives and expertise needed to ensure that products and services meet required accessibility specifications. What are the stumbling blocks and what are some of the emerging solutions – whether technological or standards-based? Attendees will come away with a greater understanding of what’s needed and what’s possible.
April 25 and 26, 2023, 10.00am - 1.00pm Eastern Time (US/Canada)
The 2023 Humanities Roundtable will carry forward the tradition of its previous 20 years, drawing on the expertise of scholarly associations, university presses, digital archives, and scholars to provide participants with two days of discussions around the needs of those working in these critical disciplines. The theme and program for this event will be developed In collaboration with a committee of stakeholders, who collectively reflect the overall interests of the information community.
May 17, 2023, 12.00pm - 4.00pm Eastern Time (US/Canada)
Metadata is critical to success but it is increasingly complicated to work with. For example, in addition to descriptive metadata, individuals may also need specific legal or administrative metadata in order to clarify appropriate rights for usage. This virtual conference will bring together experts from across the information community to discuss current behaviors, practices, and applications for metadata.
October 25 and 26, 10.00am - 1.00pm Eastern Time (US/Canada)
The information environment is a complex network of software and operating systems that are expected to perform new functions across both old and new hardware. What are the big challenges facing content providers, service providers, and platform hosts? What are the smaller speed bumps that impede our progress? The theme and program for this event will be developed In collaboration with a committee of stakeholders, who collectively reflect the overall interests of the information community.
