The RLG Member’s Forum was held this month in Washington, DC. It was entitled More, Better, Faster, Cheaper: How does one develop practical, effective, descriptive practices that consider audience, economy, and functionality, and strike the right balance among the three? During the RLG Members’ Forum, held August 7-8 at the Folger Library in Washington, DC, 15 invited speakers and an audience of 125 RLG-Programs partners debated emerging strategies in the realm of libraries, archives, and museums.
There are a number of resources available from the forum including podcasts and powerpoint presentations. A small sample includes:
