IMLS Names University of Denver and the Denver Art Museum As Host of 2010/2011 WebWise Conferences
The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) has selected the University of Denver and the Denver Art Museum to plan and co-host the 2010 and 2011 WebWise Conferences on Libraries and Museums in the Digital World. The next WebWise conference will take place in Denver, March 3-5, 2010, and will focus on the theme Imagining the Digital Future. Online registration for all events will be available through the IMLS Web site in early December.
Each year, the WebWise Conference brings together approximately 350 representatives of museums, libraries, archives, information and systems science, and other fields interested in the future of high-quality online content for inquiry and education. In 2010, the conference will focus on the future of collaborative digitization programs, the use of new technologies to more deeply engage audiences, and the training of a 21st century cultural heritage information workforce.
Members of the 2010 Program Committee are representatives from IMLS, the University of Denver, BCR, the Denver Art Museum, and national leaders in digitization. All panels will be recorded and available after the conference through webcasts via an open access website.
