The archived audio recording of the July 15 CNI Conversations session is now available at http://conversations.cni.org/ (to subscribe to the audio feed add http://conversations.cni.org/feed to iTunes, or any podcatcher). This session includes a recap of the JISC/CNI Edinburgh conference by CNI Executive Director Clifford Lynch and myself; sessions on e-science, “digging into data challenge projects,” special collections, institutional strategies for digital content, and services for users of mobile devices were highlighted. Cliff also discussed the IATUL conference and the Microsoft research meeting. I gave a summary of an article on the current status of electronic thesis and dissertation (ETD) programs in the US that Cliff and I co-authored and that will appear soon in the ARL publication RLI (issue 270).
