The ALCTS PARS Digital Conversion Interest Group is now accepting proposals for speakers to present at the ALA Annual Conference (Orlando, FL) on Saturday June 25th, 2016 from 1:00-2:30 PM.

The Digital Conversion Interest Group provides a venue for ALA members to discuss the preservation of audio, photographic, and moving image materials in both analog and digital formats and the digitization or reformatting of audio, photographic, print, and moving image materials for preservation and access.

The interest group Co-Chairs are seeking 15-20 minute presentations surrounding current trends and projects as they relate to digitization or digital migration of library collections, with possible topics including:

*             Methods for prioritizing analog materials for digitization

*             Tools for digitization, metadata management, file transfers, and file management

*             Planning for digital preservation storage

*             Cross-departmental collaboration (Preservation, Conservation, IT, Reference & Information)

*             Risk assessments and migration of born-digital formats

Please email your proposals to the co-chairs (Erica Titkemeyer<mailto:etitkem at email.unc.edu> and Ivey Glendon<mailto:img7u at eservices.virginia.edu>) by Friday April 15th, 2016.
