by the CIC
Learning Technology Group and the CIC
Digital Library Initiatives Overview Committee, the focus of
this conference was to define issues surrounding the integration
of course management systems and library systems, in addition to
promoting dialogue among key stakeholders.
Please review our Conference Overview page for more detail concerning
the goals of the conference and the types of attendees. A summary
report (PDF) of the conference also is available from our Reading
& Resources page.
We started with a question:
"How do we begin to imagine an integrated future of teaching,
learning and information services?" Keynote speaker Clifford
Lynch, Executive Director of the Coalition for Networked Information
(CNI), helped set the stage. Since this was a "working conference"
we expected and encouraged a high level of participation and interactivity
during the group discussions. These proved fruitful. The topics
that emerged from our discussions are detailed in a link from our
Reading and Resources page.
Further interaction among attendees took place during the three-hour
poster session on Day 2, which featured entries from most or all
of the institutions in the CIC. Poster content in the form of PowerPoints,
PDFs and other resource types can be found within Poster
If, like us, you imagine
an integrated future for library content, library services and course
management systems, we invite you to explore this web site!
