Established in 2009, the ASERL Information Technology and Digital Initiatives Interest Group (ITDIIG) is charged with exploring cooperative ventures between member libraries and to implement mechanisms for sharing knowledge and best professional practices in the fields of library information technology and digital libraries and archives. The ASERL ITDIIG seeks areas of interest for research and exploration, investigate potential collaborative/cooperative ventures based on that research, and periodically recommend specific ventures to ASERL’s leadership for implementation.
The ASERL ITDIIG is led and managed by two co-chairs appointed by the ASERL Board for a term of two years each, with terms rotating every-other year. The current ITDIIG co-chairs are Bob Price (UNC-Charlotte) and David Comeaux (LSU). Questions, comments, or suggestions about ITDIIG activities can be addressed to either co-chair and/or to John Burger, ASERL’s Executive Director.
ASERL ITDIIG Webinars
Approximately once per quarter, ASERL’s ITDIIG group offers online meetings (webinars) for interested ASERL librarians. Using a “lunch-n-learn” format, the goal is to provide brief overviews into the IT/digital library initiatives underway within the Association. Upcoming webinars are announced via the ITDIIG listserv and on the ASERL website.
