OCLC Programs and Research Offers Online PARcasts

The first (and second) in a new series of podcasts and webinars from Programs and Research staff is now available on the OCLC Web site.

The podcasts are recorded impromptu interviews in which Programs and Research staff ask the question, "What's keeping you awake at night?" to selected people who are thinking ahead, worrying about big issues or imagining the next big thing.

The first podcast is now available, in which RLG Program Officer Merrilee Proffitt interviews RLG Program Partner Mark Dimunation, Chief of the Rare and Special Collections Division at the Library of Congress, about "The Value of Physical Artifacts in an Increasingly Virtual World" (.mp3: 7.4MB/22min.).

The webinars are recorded online presentations that cover topics such as the latest RLG Programs work agenda updates, reports or project findings. Participation in live webinars is available exclusively to RLG Programs partners as a benefit of partnership, but recordings are made available on the PARcast Web page for the benefit of all.

The recording of the first webinar, "Out of the Stacks and onto the Desktop: Rethinking Assumptions about Access and Digitization," with RLG Program Officers Ricky Erway and Jennifer Schaffner, is also available online.
