FREE TELECONFERENCE OCTOBER 10TH ON DIGITAL COLLECTIONS
"Digital Treasures for Teaching and Learning" will be presented Friday
October 10th from 9-11am PT at locations around the state. The
teleconference is the last of the College of DuPage 2002-03 Series, and
was originally scheduled for June 6, 2003.
The program will focus on digital collections available through the
Library of Congress American Memory and other online library collections
-- 24/7/365 resources for teaching and learning.
The presentation will also highlight a state-based model for helping
teachers, students and librarians take full advantage of the American
Memory and other digital treasures, developed by the University of
Denver Penrose Library and the Colorado Digitization Program under a
grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
The teleconference is free to Oregon libraries, sponsored in Oregon by
the State Library and the Bibliographical Center for Research (BCR) and
funded by LSTA. Any Oregon library may downlink the satellite
teleconferences, but must register with BCR ahead of time (see
