We visit Barrytown College, a re-cap of the Shared Services Forum, the new federated search tool for hospitals, the new TRAC Committee, the DPLA, and other CE opportunities at Southeastern. Also! A tiny, little teaser of our new website, which is coming soon to a computer terminal near you!
We have exciting news for organizations with a presence on HRVH – the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) announced three new service hubs, including the Empire State Digital Network for New York State! What does this mean for Southeastern members and contributors to HRVH? Through a partnership with the NY3Rs association and administration by Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO), major digital repositories in New York, including HRVH, New York Heritage and Long Island Memories, have the opportunity to submit items to a centralized hub. By contributing digital content and metadata to HRVH, libraries and cultural heritage organizations in the Southeastern Region will soon have national exposure to their content through DPLA.
Our latest newsletter is now online and available for download!
In this issue: A celebration of 20 years of Executive Director John Shaloiko’s 20 years of service to Southeastern, reports from SEAL and MISP, new news from Lynda.com, Sound and Story in the community, updates from the NY3R’s, and other items of interest for librarians, archivists, and information professionals in the Southeastern region.
