The Digital Preservation Coalition and the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland invite you to join them at a workshop to explore the preservation of 3d laser scan data: Edinburgh 1st May 2013


Current best practice guidance for the long term preservation of 3D laser scan data, in particular the required metadata is found to be onerous by data creators. This workshop will bring together leading practitioners from the archaeological community, alongside leading data archivists and software suppliers in the UK and Ireland to work towards agreeing a new metadata standard to facilitate preservation. This event will allow for communication between archivists, creators and purveyors of software and hardware for laser scanning, as well as equipment manufacturers.  The aim is to ensure that the export of metadata is much simpler and more convenient for users.

Who should come?
We want to ensure that we bring together knowledgeable and engaged practitioners at this event to inform our ambitions of a new standard. We’d very much like to benefit from your experience in this area and hope that you and your colleagues can make it. This meeting will be of interest to:

  *   Records managers and information officers in organisation that rely on long-lived 3d data gathered in the field
  *   Risk managers, executives and chief information officers in architecture, engineering and heritage management
  *   Collections managers, librarians, curators and archivists in all institutions charged with managing complex research data
  *   Tools developers and policy makers in digital preservation and 3d modelling
  *   Innovators and researchers in field recording and computer visualisation
  *   Vendors and providers of services for 3d modelling, digital preservation and heritage management
  *   Innovators, vendors and commentators on 3d modelling, computer visualisation and digital preservation
  *   Analysts seeking to develop tools and approaches for managing and exploiting complex 3d models

How to register?
This event will be free of charge but numbers will be strictly limited to 30 places and made available on a first-come, first served basis. DPC members will have a period of priority registration: http://www.dpconline.org/events/details/58-3d-laser-scanning?xref=63

A vast amount of models and terminology has been developed globally by libraries and other organizations and associations to define the skills that must someone have in order to be information literate. In the era of information plethora and digital technology, the information literacy skills are becoming more and more necessary.

Universities worldwide and especially academic libraries have early realized the importance of information literacy and they started to provide tools and programs to their students. These tools and programs were aiming to help students to recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate and use effectively the information needed. Besides, this is the definition of information literacy according to ALA.

Nowadays, information comes in many formats and forms and its validity and its quality is not always guaranteed. Students must develop new cognitive skills in order to use this information succinctly and efficiently. Additionally, the specialization in disciplines made prerequisite the information literacy to interfere with the curriculum.

In these lines of thoughts, many universities and institutions around the world are starting to endorse information literacy into the curriculum.
