NERCOMP Digital video workshop

Here’s a great professional development opportunity for any group or organization that is currently supporting digital video services in an educational setting:

Stepping into the Digital Media Paradigm: Preserving Unique Collections, Sharing Resources and Creating new IT-Library-Faculty Partnerships

Thursday, April 14, 2011
8:00am – 3:30pm
Four Points Sheraton Hotel and Conference Center
1125 Boston Providence Turnpike
Norwood, MA

I’m looking forward to hearing about the WGBH Open Vault.  The use of both the Video Furnace service as well as streaming media subscriptions at Brandeis University is also intriguing.  And of course it will be interesting to hear how our newly-emerging model for library/faculty/IT partnerships at Dartmouth is stacking up to efforts at other institutions.

So if you’re planning to attend this session please let me know. I’d welcome the chance to chat during a break or over lunch.

And if you haven’t heard about the Northeast Regional Computing Program (NERCOMP) events, they are a great resource. NERCOMP is affiliated with EDUCAUSE, and provides dozens of informational and training opportunities every year. I’ve had the opportunity to attend previous events and was impressed by the quality of the information and the speakers.  Their events are a cost-effective opportunity for staff development without a major time commitment. I highly recommend their programs to anyone in educational/IT support: programmers, support staff, managers, librarians, and anyone else who uses technology to serve an academic audience.
