Recorder Needed: Revisiting the Past, Embracing the Future

Hello Arlisians,
I will be moderating a session at the Boston conference called
Revisiting the Past, Embracing the Future, which takes place on
Saturday afternoon from 3-4 pm.  We are seeking an enthusiastic
individual to record the session — any takers?  Please see the
session description,  below, for more information.

Session F:
Revisiting the Past, Embracing the Future

Presented by:
Patricia Kosco Cossard and Kimberly Detterbeck, Architecture,
Planning, & Preservation Librarian and Visual Arts Reference and
Instruction Librarian, University of Maryland College Park and
Frostburg State University
Jolene de Verges and Allison Benedetti, Images Librarian and Project
Librarian, Rotch Library of Architecture and Planning, Massachusetts
Institute of Technology

This session explores two innovative uses of technology to address the
challenges associated with acquiring, cataloging, managing and
delivering digital archival materials unique to the fields of
architecture and archaeology. One presentation will address the
preservation of proprietary CAD models in an effort to properly
document modern architectural practice. The other will describe how
new technologies and partnerships with archaeologists can transform
the traditional methods utilized by field researchers to access
spatial, visual and textual information. In addition, the session will
address opportunities for librarians to develop relationships with new
communities and translate their skills to meet the evolving and
complex arenas of highly specialized formats and data.

Best wishes,
