CNI was heavily involved in the 2010 edition of this meeting, and I’m delighted to be part of the program commitee for the 2011 meeting. This is a genuinely strategic meeting that explores key issues surrounding evolving social practices that will reshape everything from the future of special collections to the practice of public and social history in the next decade or two. You can find a great deal of information about last year’s meeting through the links on the personalarchiving.com page, including presentation videos.
I hope that your organization will consider attending if this is relevant to your strategic planning.
We’ll also have a session at the Spring CNI member meeting summarizing the outcomes of this meeting.
My thanks to Jeff Ubois and the Internet Archive for their leadership in helping to advance work on this profoundly important set of issues.
