The third in a series of seminars and discussions targeted to Database Producers in the Humanities will take place on Friday, October 15, 2004 at the Getty Center in Los Angeles, CA. Among other topics, the one-day session will focus upon issues of retrospective conversions, the use and management of thesauri and vocabularies, and the recruitment/retention of volunteer contributors. There will be ample time for open discussion of issues raised in advance by participants, as well as optional social activities following the close of the session. Registration for the Roundtable is only $50, including lunch, thanks to the generous support of The J. Paul Getty Trust, the American Theological Library Association, and the RILM Abstracts of Music Literature. However, space is limited, so registrations should be made as soon as possible.
The full program and registration information is available on the NFAIS Web site (address listed below).
A limited block of rooms has been reserved at the Holiday Inn Brentwood-Bel Air (170 N. Church Lane, Los Angeles, CA 90049, 310-476-6411 - mention the Getty Center to receive the meeting rate of $109), and a shuttle will be available from the hotel to the Getty Center.
