This email is being sent to those who attended either the August 2013 or
March 2014 Mid Michigan Digital Practitioners meeting. Please forward to
any others that may be interested.

The next Mid Michigan Digital Practitioners (MMDP) meeting is
scheduled for *September
18, 2014 at Central Michigan University* from 9-4. A networking and coffee
period will be from 830-9 and tour of the Clarke Historical Library from
4-5. We received a lot of good ideas from our March post-meeting survey and
hope to implement them at the September meeting.

Presentations will include a Visualization tool, ResourceSpace,
Digitization workflow, Digital Newspaper Project, Modeling Relationships in
Fedora, and much more. We have filled most of the lightning round talk
spots but are looking to fill out our Birds of a Feather section. Birds of
a Feather discussion provides the opportunity to discuss topics of interest
with others. Current categories are:

·         Web Archiving

·         Media Preservation

·         Digital Assets

·         Digital Humanities

·         Rights Management

*Do you have a suggestion for another topic? Would you like to volunteer to
be a topic moderator?*

At the end of the day, we will have time and space to have multiple tool
demos going. We are looking for people who might want to demo Omeka,
Preservica, or CollectiveAccess. These are informal demos sitting at a

And one last thing; we are also adding a time and space for poster
sessions. If interested, let me know.

Registration will begin in Mid July at http://tinyurl.com/mcoqqka .
