Our transportation libraries are always looking for ways to maximize the potential of digital information for their clients. The LIST Committee is sponsoring a poster session at the TRB 91st Annual Meeting, January 22-26, 2012 in Washington, DC. This has been a very successful and highly visible event in past years.
Call Title: Digital Directions in Transportation Information Management
Call Description: The Committee on Library and Information Science for Transportation (LIST) invites you to submit proposals for a poster session focusing on innovative digitization projects that can give modern transportation professionals a competitive edge in capturing, converting, presenting, and preserving transportation information. Posters will be displayed at the TRB Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, January 2012.
Posters on all aspects of digitization are welcome including converting hardcopy and analog materials (books, reports, records, maps, photos, prints, audio, etc.) to digital formats, or converting an older digital format to a newer, better digital format, description (metadata) and representation of digital objects, coordination and financing of the digitization project, digital asset management, digital curation, digital preservation, and digital rights management.
