C21st Curation public evening lecture series at UCL April/May 2007  

The C21st Curation public evening lecture series at UCL for April/May 2007 has been announced and the speakers and topics will be of interest to many library, archive, and museum staff. These free lectures by seven leading speakers will be open to students, professionals and the general public in the Chadwick lecture theatre at UCL from 6.00 -7.15pm. Each lecture will be followed by a reception to which speakers and the audience are invited.  

Lynne Brindley, Chief Executive of the British Library, will open the series on Wednesday, 25 April with a keynote paper on 

The incredible journey - building great libraries for the digital age. 
Five years ago the British Library embarked upon an incredible journey to redefine what it means to be a great library in the digital age. Now, as the BL considers what should be the next stage of its strategy, it is clear that much has been achieved but there is still much more to be done. The challenges - and the opportunities - open to libraries in the fast-moving and competitive information age are far greater than ever before. How should libraries engage with the Web 2.0 world? 

This talk reflects upon 7 lessons Lynne Brindley has identified as crucial to redefining the library and, as libraries approach the next phase of digital development, considers the way forward with a specific focus on the BL's current Web 2.0 work; its approach to digitization in a European context; and its new national shared-service proposition with university libraries. 

The full ist of dates, sessions, and speakers, in the series will be:

25 April - Lynne Brindley, Chief Executive of the British Library, will open the series on  with a keynote paper on building great libraries for the digital age; 
 
2 May - Jens Redmer (Google Booksearch) and Michael Buschmann (Microsoft) will focus on mass digitisation and digital libraries;
 
9 May - Paul Kellam (UCL Centre for Virology) and Fiona Reddington from the NCRI Informatics Initiative will focus on medical and scientific information;
 
16 May - Lorraine Estelle (JISC Collections) and Anthony Watkinson (SLAIS), will focus on electronic publishing and collections.
