The Society of Ohio Archivists’ invites you to attend the 2014 Annual

Spring Conference to be held on Friday May 16 at the OCLC Lakeside

Conference Center in Dublin, Ohio.

 

This year’s theme, *Building Capacity: Discovering Archival Collections in

the 21st Century*, will explore user interactions with rare and unique

materials in our technology driven society. We are excited to announce that

the plenary speaker is Chris Prom, Ph.D., Assistant University Archivist

and Associate Professor of Library Administration at the University of

Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Dr. Prom is a recognized expert in digital

archives.

 

Panel sessions and posters will feature topics on community outreach

through mobile digitization and behind-the-scenes tours, digital repository

migration, local grants programs, descriptive workflows, and more. This

year’s silent auction will feature a Bowe Bell and Howell Sidekick scanner,

valued at over $1,000 and tickets to Zoombezi Bay in Columbus, Ohio.
