ATG Conferences, Meetings and Webinars 9/5/19

by | Sep 5, 2019 | 0 comments


Date:  March 9-11, 2020
Location: AT&T Hotel & Conference Center at UT Austin.

We invite you to join us in Austin, Texas for our 6th Designing for Digital conference — the annual conference that aims to approach the library digital and physical experience from a holistic point of view.

We consider library services and overall strategy. We dig into tools and methods, Design & UX in practice, service and physical design, too. We will also look ahead to emerging issues and the future of UX inside and outside of the library.

  • If you’re already immersed in Design & UX, consider presenting your work and learn from industry pros.
  • If you’re new to Design & UX, find your people, find where to start and see best practices in action.
  • If you’re somewhere in between, build new connections in your community and develop a deeper skillset.

D4D is a 2 ½ day program with networking time and meetups around Austin. Registration and Housing are now open. Visit the website for more details →


Libraries have long collected audio and video content in varying formats housing those materials in special archives and collections. However, unlike the static documents that have been digitized for purposes of enabling Web access by users, some collections of audio and video content may not have received the appropriate attention and resources that ensure long-term preservation. This session will look at a variety of such collections and associated archiving initiatives focused on what is an increasingly at-risk set of materials.

Confirmed speakers for this event include: Kira M. Sobers, Digital Media Coordinator, Smithsonian Institution Archives; Clifford B. Anderson, Associate University Librarian for Research and Learning, Vanderbilt University; Edward M. Corrado, Associate University, Naval Postgraduate School.

Current thinking is that scientific research should be readily reproducible, discoverable, and openly accessible. There is also significant drive to develop open educational resources in the interests of easing economic burdens on student populations. The challenge then for libraries, content providers and platform providers is how best to implement strategies, technologies and practices in support of those concerns.

But there are questions that must be addressed in discussing open science, open educational resources, open access monographs, etc. What supports are necessary in bringing this open approach into reality? What may be feasible in building an inclusive and collaborative knowledge infrastructure in this environment? What are key elements or best practices? What fiscal models or arrangements might be needed to ensure sustainability? Which sector (academic, government/public, commercial, etc.) is best positioned to muster the necessary resources?

Confirmed speakers for this event include (among others) Mark Hahnel, CEO and Founder, Figshare; Kathy Essmiller, Visiting Assistant Professor, Oklahoma State University; Mike Taylor, Head of Metrics Development, Digital Science; Judy Ruttenberg, ARL Program Director, Association of Research Libraries; Judy Luther, President, Informed Strategies.
