Web Wise

Right now I’m in the very damp city of Chicago, for the annual IMLS-sponsored Web Wise conference. IMLS (or more correctly the Institute for Museum and Library Services) is a U.S. government funding agency that makes grants to museums and libraries, and Web Wise is the annual get-together for several hundred grant awardees to share their experiences. Fortunately it’s not limited to recipients of IMLS funding, though, or else I wouldn’t be here!

The theme of this year’s conference is Sharing Resources, and so far it’s been a very good event. Tomorrow morning at some ungodly hour I am speaking as part of a panel entitled Museum & Library Partnerships for Power: New Developments in the Museum Field and Implications for Libraries. The title of my talk is “The CIDOC Conceptual Reference Model: Building Semantic Bridges Between Museums, Libraries & Archives.”
