Symposium - Appraisal of Electronic Records & Personal Papers

The Appraisal of Electronic Records & Personal Papers
Madison Wisconsin, October 22 – 24, 2009

Join us! The Fall 2009 MAC Symposium, The Appraisal of Electronic Records & Personal Papers, builds on the discussion of last year's successful symposium on digital preservation, to discuss approaches to the appraisal of electronic records and digital objects. Presenters Richard Pearce-Moses, Nan Kunde, and Joanne Kaczmarek will be guiding attendees through discussions of appraisal of electronic records, including records in highly structured large systems as well as records being created in commonly used formats.

The symposium will begin on the evening of Thursday, October 22, with a hospitality suite, to allow you to register early and mingle with colleagues. Friday's workshops will be fueled by refreshments and we'll provide a working lunch, to continue discussion. Optional restaurant tours will be organized for Friday evening. Saturday's half-day session will allow for a second workshop and a wrap up, and will include refreshments as well.

Come join us on the shore of beautiful Lake Mendota in Madison, Wisconsin. Enjoy the fall colors. Meet colleagues who are struggling with the same challenges as you. Meet leaders who have found solutions.

Registration: Enrollment is limited to 75 attendees. Registrations will be accepted beginning September 15, 2009.

Accommodations are available at the University of Wisconsin Madison Lowell Center, or at the Campus Inn. Note that to insure conference rates, you must book your room at the Lowell Center by September 23, 2009!
