International Workshop on Digital Resources Management
About the workshop:
The rapid growth in the creation and dissemination of digital information resources, has emphasized the speed and ease of short-term dissemination with little regard to understand the digital information environment. However, digital information is fragile in ways that differ from traditional technologies, such as paper or microfilm. It is more easily corrupted or altered without recognition. Digital storage media have shorter life spans, and digital information requires access technologies that are changing at an ever-increasing pace. Digital resources now begin rule the information world. To become a successful library and information professional, one needs to understand the recent trends more particularly the global developments. Realising this significance a training programme on digital information resources is being organized. This training programme will address the following major themes.
- e information transaction and resources
- e mail discussion forums, list servers, group mails, and professional discussion lists
- digital information archiving
- customization and personalization of digital resources
- digital access management
- digital resources for elearning
- digital resources processing, metadata and intelligent search and so on.
