The June 20 DCHDC Meetup

We've got some great speakers this month!

First off we have Kelly Quinn, Terra Foundation Project Manager for Online Scholarly and Educational Initiatives at Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution. She'll talk about the Archives’ efforts to reach new audiences and to strengthen existing relationships using materials from their Terra Foundation Center for Digital Collections.

Next up is Kris Nelson, a Program Specialist from the Library of Congress talking about the National Digital Stewardship Residency program. The NDSR is a collaborative field experience program developed by The Library of Congress and the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The program aims to develop a community of professionals in the dynamic field of digital stewardship. His talk will focus on how the program works, what makes a competitive applicant and projects for the 2013 cohort.

Digital Cultural Heritage DC meets on the third Thursday of every month. If you're interested in acquiring, preserving, stewarding, providing access to, exhibiting and interpreting digital cultural heritage, join us to meet like-minded folks, hear what people are doing in this space, and learn about some awesome projects and technologies in the field. For updates, join our meetup group here.

Please note that Stetson's is a bar, and 21 and over.
