The Western CONTENTdm Users Group Meeting for 2010 is June 2-4 at Marriott Library. We’ve got a great lineup of presentations over a wide range of topics related to digital library innovations, production processes and digital preservation. Registration is open now for the June 2 preconference and the June 3-4 conference.
We’d like to take the credit for booking them, but by coincidence, U2 will be playing Rice Eccles Stadium (which is just a stone’s throw from Marriott Library) on June 3rd. Tickets are still available!
What better way is there to wrap up the conference day than by going to U2 that night?
We’re also tweeting! Follow us on Twitter for up to the minute conference news and information.
