Strategies for Building Digitized Collections, by Abby Smith, September 2001, Pub102, Digital Library Federation and the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR), ISBN 1-887334-87-4, 41 pp. $20.00 in print format.
The following is excerpted from the abstract to the report. The abstract and report are available in HTML format at the CLIR web site <http://www.clir.org/pubs/reports/reports.html>. The report is also available in PDF format and may be ordered from CLIR in paper format:
"In this report, Abby Smith synthesizes the nearly 10 years' experience that libraries have had digitizing items from their rare, special, and general collections, and making them available online. The learning she uncovers is distilled in and extended by several case studies conducted in leading digital libraries with very different digitization programs. Smith demonstrates that digitization programs work best where their role within a library's collection development strategy is clearly understood, and she identifies several roles that such programs can play....The report is...much more than a strategic guide for individual institutions; it is a route map that points important directions for the library community as a whole."

Trans-European Telecommunication Networks for Access to Europe's Cultural Heritage, TEN-Telecom, Directorate-General Information Society, The European Commission. Call for Project Proposals. The submission deadline is 31 January 2002.
The European Commission has launched a call for project proposals under its TEN-Telecom programme. This call for proposals is aimed at the implementation of projects of common interest in the field of trans-European telecommunication networks. The 'Networks for Access to Europe's Cultural Heritage projects specifically offer opportunities for multimedia applications arising from cooperation between libraries, museums and audio-visual archives.
The objective of the projects in this category is "to create the conditions for the deployment of multimedia applications giving access to the European cultural heritage (collections and materials held in libraries, museums and audio-visual archives) and developing models allowing a fair return on investment, even if many content holdings organisations operate on a non-profit basis."
"The successful deployment of these applications requires the creation of co-operation frameworks between media, cultural, legal and governmental actors and due consideration to legal constraints affecting the exploitation of applications (copyright, licensing). Applications should be interoperable and based on accepted standards and protocols for digitisation and data exchange, thus allowing a global, multilingual access to European cultural heritage." Projects should be undertaken in:
"Intermuseum virtual exhibitions. Current technology allows the implementation of virtual exhibitions by bringing together multimedia information from various collections or from inside a museum. The objective is to develop new frameworks for virtual and thematic exhibitions enabling art trends to be known by a large public."
"Multimedia exhibitions adapted to tourism can also increase tourists understanding and appreciation of Europes cultural heritage. Furthermore, they can support the dissemination and promotion of Europe's cultural wealth, as well as contribute to preserving cultural awareness."
"Cultural heritage and education. The use of multimedia by teachers is becoming increasingly routine as an aid to teaching students. The integration of these products into school and university courses has to be addressed from both the museum and educational perspective. The objective is to stimulate the deployment of educational multimedia products exploiting Europe's cultural heritage."

ASIS&T 2002 Annual Meeting: Knowledge, Connections and Community, 18 - 21 November 2002, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. Call for Participation. The submission deadline is 4 February 2002.
"The first years of the new millennium and recent world events have cast into bold relief the role played by information in a complex global society. We are seeing a new awareness of the importance of the free flow of necessary and time-sensitive information and the technologies that support it. Information organization, access and transfer are more than ever recognized as essential elements in all aspects of business and daily interaction. That information plays a profound role in building and sustaining community on a local and global scale has been vividly demonstrated by the reactions of individuals and institutions when faced with a major disaster. The ability of our institutions to react to cataclysmic events has been shown to be dependent on an information infrastructure that is stable, secure and adaptable, highlighting the roles of disaster preparedness and preservation. The information technologies which we have begun to take for granted have, when challenged, been dynamically adapted to new situations. The 2002 ASIS&T conference will provide an opportunity to explore these and other information phenomena and their contribution to the transformation of our society."
"Papers, posters and presentations are solicited in a wide variety of information and technology related areas, including (but not limited to):
Ethical, social, political, legal and economic issues related to the role of information in society, such as privacy, copyright, information policy.
