On April 9, 2014, Copley Library hosted the first Digital Initiatives Symposium (DIS) at USD. The symposium keynote speakers were Lorraine Haricombe, Dean of the University of Kansas Libraries and Lee Van Orsdel, Dean of University Libraries at Grand Valley State University. There were also presenters from institutions throughout California and the United States.
The day featured presentations on institutional repositories, data management, undergraduate research, and other cutting-edge digital initiatives in libraries, museums, and other cultural memory institutions.
The DIS was very successful. Participants were excited to have the symposium near them discussing the very timely topic of digital initiatives. The work for a second DIS will surely get underway given the positive feedback!
