ACA 2006

July 3rd, 2006 · No Comments · Meetings & Presentations

I have just returned from delivering a presentation on ‘Web 2.0 and Archives Access Systems’ at the Association of Canadian Archivists, 2006 annual conference in St.John’s, Newfoundland.

I was expecting some objections to the ideas that I was putting forth on the basis of protecting professional standards, preserving authentic context or budget priorities. However, my talk was well-received and I only had discussions with archivists who are very keen on applying the Web 2.0 concepts of open architectures, open content and community-input to their collections.

I have posted a screencast copy of my ACA 2006 presentation in the ‘Papers & Presentations’ section of my blog.
