OCLC Western is pleased to announce the fourth annual OCLC Western
Digital Forum to be held August 14-15, 2008 in Tacoma, Washington at the
Hotel Murano. This year's national forum will focus on Making
Digitization Count: Assessment and Evaluation Practices.
The 2008 forum will include prominent speakers from the archives,
library and museum communities who will discuss current projects to
create and automate evaluation and assessment tasks for digital
Keynote speaker: Kate Haley Goldman, a research associate at the
Institute for Learning Innovation, Annapolis MD
Elizabeth Yakel, Assistant Professor, University of Michigan School of
Dr. Helen R. Tibbo, Professor, School of Information and Library
Science, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
The program will also explore how evaluation and assessment methods
inform decision making for digital collection management. Presentations
will highlight national projects of significance, 21st Century learners
and model practices for digital program assessment. Our goal is to
support libraries and the cultural heritage community through a mix of
invited speakers and engaging discussion sessions.
The forum is designed to offer a smaller and more intimate meeting
setting where participants can share knowledge and create networks with
other organizations that are working to develop assessment and
evaluation practices. This forum builds on the success of past OCLC
Western Digital Forums, held annually in August on the West coast.
The OCLC Western Digital Forum is co-sponsored by the Orbis Cascade
Alliance and OCLC Digital Collection Services.
So make your plans now to join your colleagues at this prestigious
national event. For more information about the 2008 OCLC Western Digital
Forum and to register, please visit our Web page:
