Exploring Mobility, Chatbots, Blockchain and Augmented Reality solutions in the Cloud to re-imagine Education & Research

US Library of Congress Forum

Kevin Roebuck
Director, Digital Experience

The US Library of Congress will play host next week for our first forum on digital preservation and access based on the collaboration between Endeavor, Sun and the National Library of New Zealand. We've now confirmed events now in Seoul at the International Federation of Libraries meeting in August and in Alicante Spain at the European Conference on Digital Libraries conference. We hope to visit all the great capitals of the world with our message this year. While in DC, I'll drop in on friends at Georgetown and Blackboard during the whirlwind visit of 2 days and just maybe squeeze in a visit the the air and space museum.

Here is a sample of the invitation. It's going to be a fun year campaigning this message around the world. We are all so thankful for the Library of Congress' hospitality.

You are invited to attend a roundtable discussion on:

& Access:  Insights Learned from the Project to
New Zealand’s
Cultural Heritage

Library of Congress
James Madison MemorialBuilding

Avenue SE
(between 1st
& 2nd Streets), Sixth Floor – Room 642


Join us as we explore how the digital artifacts of New Zealand’s culture have
been gathered, stored and preserved for its citizens and the world.  From
best practices to lessons learned from the New Zealand Digital Archive (NDHA)
project – this discussion will provide many valuable insights for other
institutions embarking on similar projects. The agenda includes the
following general topics (a more complete agenda will be emailed in a
week’s time):

  • NDHA Project Overview, Steve Knight,
    Manager Innovation Centre & Programme Architect, National Digital Heritage
    Archive, Digital Innovation Services.
  • NDHA Mandate and the implications
    for the national library Digital Preservation Platform
    : Rolf Kwakkelaar, Director of Digital Library Products Endeavor’s partnership with
    NLNZ in delivering a long-term preservation technology solution

Sincere thanks to the Library of Congress
for graciously providing the meeting space for this important discussion. In order to ensure a productive discussion, we are asking that each
institution limit the number of attendees to five.  The following
institutions will be represented at this meeting:

  • The Library of Congress
