From Penn State Symposium website -
Every intersection tells a story, what’s yours?
Please join us August 6 – August 8, 2017 for an interactive and engaging symposium “Intersections: Technology and Public Services in Special Collections Symposium” at the Penn State University campus in University Park, PA.
Engage at the intersection of your institution’s awareness of need and responsive action!
Public services are the most visible part of any archives or special collections library, but also depend upon the efficient functioning of other essential operations.
The 2017 Intersections symposium builds on its predecessors (the Aeon Symposium at Yale in 2015 and at the University of Michigan in 2016). However, this iteration expands on what it means to provide access to collections in the archives and special collections environment. Though Aeon, remains a key tool, partner, and product of focus, Intersections also includes other workflows, tools, partners, and products that are present in our daily work.This symposium also aligns and incorporates many of the key components of the RBMS and SAA’s Metrics and Assessment Task Force report to broach broader topics with regard to assessing impact via meaningful metrics. Please join us for this exploration of how technology, assessment, and public service intersect to support discovery and access of cultural heritage collections. Public service special collections professionals truly work at the intersection of where technology meets end-users’ needs. Colleagues with an interest in public services in the special collections world are invited to attend, regardless of the tools locally used.
