"Curating Digital Objects" will be the topic of discussion Nov. 21, 1:30 to 3 p.m. at Cabell Library.
Museums, libraries and archives rely on the digital environment to save, manage and provide access to their collections. These organizations also collect digitized and born-digital cultural objects.
Presenters from Richmond cultural institutions will share their experiences and best practices for collecting and curating digital objects. Panelists will include Meg M. Eastman, digital collections manager, Virginia Historical Society; Crista Lembeck LaPrade, digital projects and preservation coordinator at the University of Richmond; Renee M. Savits, Civil War 150 Legacy project coordinator, Library of Virginia; and Wesley Chenault, head, Special Collections and Archives, Cabell Library.
The session, followed by a reception, will be held in Room 250. It is free and open to all but seating is limited.
This event is a part of VCU Libraries' well received Digital Pragmata series.
