Conference proposal deadline approaching

Reminder: the proposal deadline to speak at the 2010 HLA Annual Conference deadline is 15 July.  If you you would like to present, please complete a proposal at http://assist.hawaii.edu/hla/2010/speakerproposal.php by 15 July.

Although HLA will consider any presentation that is interesting, entertaining, and potentially useful to Hawaii's librarians, programs reflecting the conference theme, "Growing Digital: Issues and Challenges for Libraries," are encouraged. We are particularly interested in examining the challenges and opportunities facing libraries as well as the lessons learned, problems encountered, and solutions proposed to grapple with digital-related  issues. Some general ideas for programs include:


  • Digital technologies
  • Technical architecture
  • Building digital collections
  • Digitization
  • Metadata
  • Copyright
  • Rights management
  • Preservation
  • Changing user needs
  • Evaluation of digital libraries
