*Survive or thrive: making the most of your digital content Conference*

http://www.surviveorthrive.org.uk/

Dates: 8-9 June 2010

Location: Macdonald Hotel, Manchester

Background

The growth of digital content and use of content on the Web has been rapidly 
changing over the past decade. The digital deluge provides opportunities but 
how can these best be exploited? Are you making the most of your content? What 
are the technical and strategic approaches required to thrive in today?s 
environment?

Question this conference will start to address:

* How do we exploit the value of distributed resources? ? linked data, 
geospatial tagging and metadata etc?
* In terms of scale what are the issues and barriers? What does working at web 
scale mean and offer? How can the crowd be exploited?
* What are the issues and opportunities for opening up content?
* How do we effectively and efficiently meet the needs of users and taking the 
best advantage of the available technologies? For example personalisation?
* How do sectors work together? Education, the cultural heritage sector, 
engaging business and community and the public and private sectors? What role 
should strategic agencies play?

Aim

The aim of the conference is to bring together community of experts to provide 
a focus on the above questions. This will allow us to identify the key 
approaches that universities, colleges, the cultural heritage and public 
sectors can pursue to support education, research and the wider knowledge 
economy.

*Outcomes*

It will provide a *Position Paper*, based on the workshop discussion that gives 
direction to content providers in the networked environment.

Also the outcomes of the workshop will help to inform JISC programmes and 
service approaches, in particular the resource discovery and access strategies 
that JISC pursues; for example the JISC and Research Libraries UK Resource 
Discovery Task Force vision <http://rdtf.jiscinvolve.org/> and the JISC?s 
Strategic Content Alliance <http://sca.jiscinvolve.org/> 
<http://sca.jiscinvolve.org/> as appropriate.
