The Slavic Reference Service will host a workshop addressing the current state of digitization and digital collections in the area of Baltic Studies. This year marks the 100 year anniversary of the Baltic States: Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. In honor of this occasion, this workshop will discuss the many ways in which memory institutions from these countries have worked to make their unique collections available to their patrons, diaspora communities, and the public in general through the use of web technologies. The workshop will include expert panelists from institutions that collect and digitize materials from the Baltic countries and diaspora communities who will discuss their activities in the field.
Featuring expert panelists:
- Geoff Willard, Hannah Frost, Michael Angeletti (Digitization Services Team, Stanford University)
