During the week of February 23-27,
2009 TELDAP International Conference held in conjunction with Global
Research Library 2020 and MCN Taiwan Meeting in Taipei, Taiwan.
TELDAP is a nation-wide and
centrally-funded project to bring together the cultural and
scientific projects in the digital environment.
The TELDAP organizers did an excellent
job of bringing together a world-wide group of collaborators to share
their own experiences and work with participating TELDAP institutions
to analyze the work of TELDAP.
Myself and Michael Edson, Director of
Web Strategy in the Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO)
were invited to give an overview of library, archives and museum
collaborations, and web strategy for the MCN Taiwan portion of the
meeting. Our session, attended by about 150 people, was well received
with many comments and questions. You can find my presentation, “A
Natural History of Unicorns: Smithsonian Collaborations in the World
of Library, Archives, and Museums” is available online.
