Our next #uklibchat: Digital Libraries, Thursday 6 March 6:30 – 8:30pm

Our next chat is coming up on Thursday 6 March and our topic will be digital libraries. As we’ve covered digitisation in a previous #uklibchat, and digital libraries is a huge topic, we’re going to focus on born digital collections. We’ll talk about what sorts of digital collections we work with, whether e-journals, e-books, audiovisual collections, or web based content. What are the issues in managing these collections? How do users view them and use them? What is a digital library and where do we draw the line between digital libraries, websites, and databases?

Look out for a feature blog post later this month on the topic. Our agenda will go up for you to contribute questions about a week before the chat. We’re looking forward to chatting with you on Thursday 6 March, 6:30 – 8:30pm!
