2009 WebWise Conference on Libraries and Museums in the Digital World

Three hundred museum and library professionals from across the United States gathered together in February 2009 to discuss the development of digital resources and how this development affects librarians and information specialists at cultural institutions. This straightforward website includes webcasts of the sessions and is the next best thing to attending the conference as visitors to their site can listen to digital recordings of every session from the 2009 WebWise Conference. Some of the sessions held, in addition to the opening remarks and the wrap-up, include the complicated topics of "Rights and Responsibilities"--that of museum and library collections and users; "Identity and Collaboration"--when collaboration between institutions is impeded and when collaboration threatens to adversely change the "brand" of an institution; and "Chasing the Edge and Maintaining the Core"--the balance between acquiring cutting edge technology while still keeping the core services well maintained.
