The first ever CONTENTdm Western Users Group Meeting
is scheduled for July 23-24 at Reed College in Portland, OR. Although users of the software meet annually at ALA conferences, this two-day meeting was arranged in response to the overwhelming desire of CONTENTdm users to have more time to get together and talk about their experiences, challenges, and successes building CONTENTdm digital collections.
for the meeting includes topics such as: All Things Metadata, Customizations, Multi-state/Partner Collaborations, and Publicizing Collections. I will be participating in a panel discussion on Workflow Models with Eric Luhrs of Lafayette College and Joanna Burgess of Reed College.
The event is sponsored by OCLC Western and the organizers have set up a Western Users Group Wiki
with the agenda, speaker information, and logistics for attendees.
