October Edition of the #DCHDC Meetup!

Our second meetup will be on Thursday, October 18 at 7:00 pm at the upstairs bar at Stetson's. We'll start with 2 (maybe 3) quick lightning talks, followed by spirited conversation.

Current lightning talk lineup:

  • Show us your digital collections: what's new and exciting in Omeka 2.0, Patrick Murray-John, Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media @patrick_mj
  • Improve your relationship (with patrons!) using the Personal Digital Archiving Kit, Erin Engle @erinengle

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.

    Parking can be tough in that area. Only a couple of blocks from the metro (U Street stop) and biking is easy!

    Darn it. I work and live in MD so I made the huge mistake of driving into DC. I was not able to find parking do eventually I gave up. But I'll make sure to have a better plan for next month. Enjoy!

    NDIIPP has been an ongoing supporter of the Best Practices Exchange conference, and I wanted to bring your attention to BPE2012, being held in Annapolis December 4-6, 2012.

    BPE2012 focuses on the work of state archives and libraries to preserve state government digital information, although practitioners from other kinds of memory organizations are very welcome. The event attracts a highly focused and participatory audience ready to hear about practical applications of digital stewardship and preservation. I encourage you to submit a proposal for the conference and to share information about the conference with other folks in your organizations who might be interested in presenting. The deadline for proposals is Oct. 12, 2012.
