Digital Maryland is a collaborative, statewide digitization program located at the Baltimore Enoch Pratt Free Library/State Library Resource Center with the mission “to facilitate the digitization and digital exhibition of the historical and cultural documents, images, audio and video held by Maryland institutions.”
The Langsdale Library and Digital Maryland recently joined forces to put on a one-day conference about preserving audiovisual materials in archives, museums, and libraries across the state. The conference was called, “Digital Maryland AV: Making the Overwhelming Possible”, and included speakers from the Smithsonian, the University of Virginia, the Baltimore Museum of Art, and Salisbury University. The program was made possible with funding by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, through the Maryland State Department of Education, Division of Library and Development Services and partnership with Digital Maryland, Maryland Library Consortium and The University of Baltimore. The conference was held in the Learning Commons’ Town Hall, and was a great success with a bevy of interaction and discussion from the 70 attendees.
