The Minnesota Digital Library is conducting a survey of Minnesota's cultural heritage community, and would be very grateful for your participation. The survey will only take 10-15 minutes of your time. The deadline for completion is 5:00 PM (Central) on April 3. Your responses will be collected and analyzed by an independent market research group, aggregated for reporting purposes, and anonymous.
The results of the survey will help us to identify areas of need and interest for our contributors, gain an understanding of the value of Minnesota Reflections, identify additional training needs, identify barriers to participation, and gain an understanding of digitization practices outside of Minnesota Reflections. Whether you are a current contributor to Minnesota Reflections, or have never contributed to the project, we want to hear from you!
We're excited to announce that Natalie Milbrodt from Queens Library will deliver this year's keynote address. Natalie leads Queens Library's Metadata Services division, responsible for the system's cataloging and digitization efforts.
In 2010, Milbrodt developed the Queens Memory program on behalf of Queens College, CUNY, and Queens Library. Queens Memory collects oral histories, photographs, and other mementos from residents at public events and exhibits them alongside selections from the library's archives on the project's website, QueensMemory.org. The program will scale up in dozens of libraries and other cultural heritage organizations as part of the Culture In Transit project.
The schedule for the rest of the day will be available when registration is announced in early May. The registration fee will be $25.00.
Phase 11 is now open! Applications and more information are available at the Phase 11 webpage.
