    Conference Announcement:

    Rescheduling of
    Wiring Memory: Cultural Heritage On-line
    13-14 September 2001
    University College Dublin
    Belfield, Dublin 4

    Sponsored by
    University College Dublin
    Council of National Cultural Institutions
    The Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaon

    Digital technologies are changing the way in which cultural institutions
    access to their holdings, and the ways scholars can make their work
    available to
    a wider audience. This two-day interdisciplinary colloquium will focus on the
    role of the World Wide Web in promoting, publicising and raising awareness of
    cultural material. It will investigate the theoretical, practical, economic and
    technical considerations of building and maintaining a cultural website.

    The colloquium will provide delegates with an opportunity to hear lectures by
    leading experts in the field including Peter Flynn, Lee Ellen Friedland, John
    McDonough and George MacKenzie. In addition, seminars will provide delegates
    with overviews to four areas critical to successful digitisation of archives:
    text imaging, databases, and metainformation. On Friday afternoon delegates
    work in small breakout groups to consider digital archive issues explored
    in the
    seminars, as well as issues of budgeting, archive scope, audience and planning.
