Save the Date for the 2019 CRKN Conference
Join us in Ottawa from October 16 to 18, 2019 for the CRKN Access to Knowledge Conference.
Building on the success of previous Annual General Meetings, CRKN invites members, stakeholders, partners, and the GLAM community to participate in the inaugural CRKN Conference. The Conference will include two days of programming in addition to updates on CRKN business and the meeting of the members. Of note, this year, we will be holding a full-day session on Canada’s Open Access Strategy.
The Conference will include:
Updates on CRKN Business
October 16, 2019
From the merger with Canadiana.org to strategic planning and significant shifts in the global licensing landscape, it has been a big year at CRKN. Join us for updates on licensing, digitization, preservation and access, and strategic planning, in preparation for the meeting of the members on the morning of October 17.
Transforming Scholarly Communications: Developing Canada’s Open Access Strategy
October 17, 2019
From OA2020 to Plan S to the University of California’s open access strategy, the international community is exploring different approaches to open access. What will be the Canadian approach? Divided into three parts, this full-day session (10 am to 5 pm) will bring together stakeholders and decision-makers to workshop Canada’s open access strategy.
Part 1: Global Strategies and Approaches
Part 2: Implementation
Part 3: Open Access in Canada: Opportunities, Challenges, and Next Steps
Digital Heritage Content and Preservation
October 18, 2019
Following up on the Joint NHDS and CRKN Workshop on Documentary Heritage held last October, join us for programming that investigates opportunities for collaboration between stakeholders to meet ambitious digitization, access, and preservation strategies for heritage content. Sessions are expected to include topics such as digitization in Canada, rights and permissions for heritage content, new technologies in digital heritage preservation, metadata, and more.
Join us at the Westin Ottawa from October 16-18, 2019.
