The Future of Archives in a Digital Age
What does it mean that for many the most used "libraries" have become "digital"? What are the implications for the development of knowledge at a time when vast amounts of data have not been made available in digital formats? Print for the People, a Mizzou Advantage networking group on digital humanities, is considering these questions. We will host, "The Future of Archives in a Digital Age," on February 24–25, 2011, with keynote addresses by Robert Darnton, Director of the University Library at Harvard, and William Ferris, former chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Our networking group is comprised of University of Missouri faculty, students, and alumni working to identify competitive assets that set MU apart from other universities.
