Library 2.0 Symposium to Explore the Future of Digital Collections
The Yale Information Society Project will host the Library 2.0 Symposium on Saturday, April 4, 2009, at Yale Law School. The confluence of book digitization projects, user-generated content, and social networking applications is forcing us to rethink the role of libraries.
This symposium will bring
together leading thinkers from libraries,
academia, and legal practice to lay out a vision for the future of the
library and digital collections; the ethical implications of Library
including data retention and patron privacy; intellectual property
rights in user-generated and traditional digital library content; and
the future of book digitization projects. Featured speakers will
Wolpert, head of MIT libraries and the MIT press; John Palfrey,
Professor of Law and Dean for Library and Information Resources at
Harvard Law School; Josh Greenberg of the New York Public Library; Jeff
Cunard of Debevoise and Plimpton; and a host of other luminaries.
The Library 2.0 Symposium will take place in Room 127 of Yale Law
School located at 127 Wall
Street, New Haven, Connecticut. This event is free and open to the
is expected to fill up quickly. Please register at your earliest
