Registration is now open for the JISC Digital Content Conference, to be held on 30 June – 1 July at the Cotswold Water Park Four Pillars Hotel, South Cerney, Gloucestershire.

The conference, as previously announced on this blog, has been organised in the the context of the completion of Phase 2 of the JISC Digitisation Programme and aims to discuss and decide the next steps that need to be taken to ensure the sustained integration of digitised content into research and education.

It will consider the issues facing the UK’s universities as they deal with creating, delivering, sustaining and using a whole range of digital content as well as looking into future opportunities and challenges. The following thematic strands will run throughout the conference:

o Managing Content
o Content Development Strategies
o Content in Education
o User Engagement
o Looking Into The Future

The event will be of interest to all decision makers involved in the provision and delivery of digital content to the education sector in the UK and internationally, including:

o Senior Librarians in further and higher education
o The librarians of the future – the new generation of librarians
o Managers of electronic resources and digital content provision
o Policy makers in charge of digital content strategies
