Conference Report from ACRL

By Cory Lampert on April 5, 2007 8:46 AM | Permalink
I returned Monday, a bit run down, from the excitement of the ACRL Conference in Baltimore. This was my first time attending the conference and I found it to be very worthwhile and fun in both programming and in the networking/social opportunities. Here is a summary of the highlights: Thursday: I got an early start and registered in the morning so that I could avoid the rush prior to the Keynote Address and Opening Reception. The keynote speaker, Michael Eric Dyson kicked off a rather rousing afternoon and somehow managed to cover a wide range of social issues AND tie it all into why librarianship is a noble pursuit. It is always fun to see a speaker that is also capable of entertaining, so Dyson's Baptist preaching and hip-hop ad-libbing added a welcome bit of flavor to the presentation. After the presentation, I took a lap through the exhibits, talked to a few very persistant salesmen and had an over-priced glass of bad wine before heading out to a dinner meeting with a vendor. Since this is a summary of highlights, I will mention here that it is worth it to try the Maryland crab cakes, even if you aren't a huge seafood fan. They were great.

Presentation at OASIS conference (Reno, NV)

On Friday, March 23 I will be participating in a panel discussion at the OASIS 2007 Conference at the Siena Hotel in Reno, NV. The title of the panel is: Museums, Libraries, and Archives in a Digital World. From the program:
What digital projects exist in Nevada and can we transform our ‘silos’ of information into an accessible Nevada Digital Library and Archives? Join Jeff Kintop, Glee Willis, Cory Lampert and Peter Michel to discuss these topics as well as standards for imaging, metadata, cataloging and indexing, and copyright issues of images, photographs, documents, newspapers and other publications.
This will be a nice opportunity to "take the pulse" on what is occuring state-wide in relation to digitization intiatives and future collaborations. I will be travelling with UNLV'S Director of Special Collections, Peter Michel and I am looking forward to seeing my counterpart; the wonderful Glee Willis, Digital Projects Librarian at the University of Nevada Reno. Jeff Kintop is the State Archive Manager at the Nevada State Library and Archives and I look forward to meeting him as well.

UNLV Libraries hosts Digitization Workshop

By Cory Lampert on November 22, 2006 10:12 AM | Permalink
In the first months on the job this summer, Dean Patty Iannuzzi asked me to write a white paper compiling important questions that need to be addressed to help direct the future of digitization projects at the Libraries. Library staff can access the paper on the Libraries staff website. As a result of the paper, the Libraries hosted an all-staff professional development event last week.
