representatives. They are big fans of ours and various people from the
Open Library project particularly have been involved in past local

If someone from SF could go there, it would be very nice.
There is a huge potential for cross-projects collaboration with IA.

Subject: [ol-discuss] Announcement: Internet Archive "Using Digital
Collections" Conference, October 27-28, 2008
On October 27-28 the Internet Archive will host its annual conference
in San Francisco with the theme "Using Digital Collections". The
meeting is being expanded from its previous one-day format in response
to participant feedback from the 2007 meeting.
This year we will build on prior themes of creating and accessing
digital content by spotlighting how digital collections are being used
to promote scholarship and to bridge institutional and geographic
boundaries. The agenda will also include technical updates on
scanning projects and a meeting of the Open Content Alliance.
A detailed agenda will be distributed in September; in the meantime,
please block out the dates and plan to join us in San Francisco!
Monday, October 27 - Tuesday, October 28
Golden Gate Club, Presidio of San Francisco
If you have questions or have suggestions for others who should be
invited, please contact Casey Nelson at casey(a)archive.org or Linda
Frueh at linda(a)archive.org.
RSVP by October 1 to casey(a)archive.org
