Dartmouth Library Hosts New England Code4Lib Regional Meeting
Early last December, library and technology enthusiasts from the far corners of New England gathered in the Jones Media Center here at Dartmouth College Library for the NE Code4Lib 2015 Fall Meeting.
Thanks to the awesome NDSR-Boston cohort, a lot of digital preservation ground was covered- including getting started with digital preservation, building a digital preservation community, and processing born-digital archival materials.
I gave a short talk about a script I use to QC and package digital materials for ingest into our repository.
You can see slides for these talks, and all of the great presentations from the meeting, on the NECode4lib 2015 Fall wiki page. Also, be sure to check out the Storify for the day put together by Joe Monibello.
The Book Arts Workshop also played a role in the event. My colleague Shaun Akhtar and I made use of the resources, expertise and equipment of the Book Arts Workshop to print custom letterpress give-away posters for the Meeting. It was a really fun way to tie together all of the technological expertise that resides here in the Library!
