Please click on the link below for the final report of the Canada-wide symposium on digitization that was held at UBC. It is unfortunate that VPL Librarians were unable to attend as you would have found much value in this inclusive gathering of information specialists from all sectors. Speakers restated the importance of having subject specialists to classify documents when preparing them for digitisation and the world wide web.
For those of you attending the BC Library Conference – see Friday, April 17, BC Digitization Showcase session (F26). This session will provide an update on the symposium, as well as interesting examples of what’s happening with digitization in British Columbia.
Digitization of our common cultural heritage is a priority for all of us.
