What: Day of Digital Archives
When: Thursday, October 6, 2011. All day.
Details from the Day of Digital Archives blog:
This Thursday, October 6th, is the first ever Day of Digital Archives. The Day of Digital Archives project has been created to raise awareness of digital archives among both users and managers. By collectively documenting what we do, we will be answering questions like: What are digital archives? Who uses them? How are they created and managed? Why are they important?
On the 6th, more than 30 archivists, librarians, scholars, and technologists will blog or tweet about their work with digital archives. Check out the project blog at http://dayofdigitalarchives.blogspot.com/ or look for the twitter hashtag #digitalArchivesDay
This is a great opportunity to not only learn about what others are doing in digital archives, but also to share what YOU are doing, or what you’d like to do. Promote your valuable skills to current and future employers!
