SESSION 103 - Archives Without Walls: The Value of Networks, Consortia, and Aggregations

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Consortia and networks in the U.S. and Europe have matured considerably in the past ten years. Now we know that technology is relatively easy; administration and governance are difficult. The speakers discuss current issues for different kinds of consortia and networks, including integration of digital objects, governance and funding, broader shared infrastructure, and incorporation of born-digital archives. Presenters propose new directions for consortia to pursue together.
