I’ve mentioned our plans for a series of podcasts on panlibus before.
These plans are now well advanced, with two of our Talking with Talis conversations recorded and almost ready for release, and several more having various i’s and t’s dotted and crossed.
As I discussed, we intend to advertise speaker and topic in advance, whenever possible, and to invite questions from all of you.
The first programme in which we are inviting your input is one that I shall be recording on Monday 24 October. I’ll be talking with Cliff Lynch, Executive Director of the Coalition for Networked Information in Washington, DC.
Quoting from Cliff’s bio,
“Clifford Lynch has been the Director of the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) since July 1997. CNI, jointly sponsored by the Association of Research Libraries and EDUCAUSE, includes about 200 member organizations concerned with the use of information technology and networked information to enhance scholarship and intellectual productivity.
Prior to joining CNI, Lynch spent 18 years at the University of California Office of the President, the last ten as Director of Library Automation. Lynch, who holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California, Berkeley, is an adjunct professor at Berkeley’s School of Information Management and Systems. He is a past president of the American Society for Information Science and a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the National Information Standards Organization.
Lynch currently serves on the National Digital Preservation Strategy Advisory Board of the Library of Congress; he was a member of the National Research Council committees that published The Digital Dilemma: Intellectual Property in the Information Infrastructure and Broadband: Bringing Home the Bits, and now serves on the NRC’s committee on digital archiving and the National Archives and Records Administration.”
We shall be conducting a wide-ranging discussion through the digital library space, so if there’s anything you would like me to ask Cliff, please send an e-mail to podcasts [at] talis [dot] com, no later than next Thursday, 20 October.
I will try to include your question, but cannot always guarantee to do so if it disrupts the broader flow of the conversation.
