Registration for DC-2014 now open!

Tuesday, July 01, 2014

Online registration for DC-2014 is now open at http://purl.org/dcevents/dc-2014/register. The conference and DCMI Annual Meeting is scheduled for 8-11 October in Austin, Texas. This year's theme is "Metadata Intersections: Bridging the Archipelago of Cultural Memory". Metadata is fundamental in enabling ubiquitous access to cultural and scientific resources through galleries, libraries, archives and museums (GLAM). While fundamental, GLAM traditions in documentation and organization lead to significant differences in both their languages of description and domain practices. DC-2014 will explore the role of metadata in spanning the archipelago of siloed cultural memory in an emerging context of linked access to data repositories as well as repositories of cultural artifacts.
