Sustaining Digital Libraries Symposium
    Sustaining Digital Libraries Symposium
Held at   Emory University
 Robert W. Woodruff Library
 540 Asbury Circle
 Atlanta, Georgia, USA
Friday October 6, 2006
Introduction: As digital libraries have rapidly evolved over the last decade, the question of how to sustain these new services has become a major concern for a wide range of institutions. This conference will bring together digital library leaders and other interested professionals to explore the key issues involved in sustaining digital libraries.

The symposium will feature a variety of leadership perspectives on preserving information and making it accessible to widely varying communities. Funding agencies such as the new NSF Office of Cyberinfrastructure will articulate the outlook of sponsoring groups. Panels will include representatives from major programs such as the National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP), the National Science Digital Library (NSDL), and the Digital Library Federation. There will also be representatives from groups that have been successful in similar digital library functions, but which are not always included in such discussions, such as and the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR).

The symposium is hosted by the MetaScholar Initiative of Emory University's General Libraries. The symposium will be held on Friday, October 6, 2006, at the Robert W. Woodruff Library on the Emory University Campus.
