Keynotes Digitaal Erfgoedconferentie 2007
Keynote 1: Jim Michalko
(OCLC/RLG) "Mass Digitization and Cultural Heritage: the imperative and the opportunity"
The presentation will address the ways in which mass digitization projects such as Google Books and others have created an environment of expectation and urgency that impacts the value proposition of cultural heritage institutions. Our imperative is to invest in digitization at an increased level adopting new processes. Our opportunity is to secure a new kind of value and importance in the flow of networked information.

Keynote 2: Nick Poole (MDA)
"What Audience? The death of mass-digitisation and the rise of the market economy"
The theme of my presentation is that the experience of the past decade has led us to re-evaluate the models and assumptions which defined the first and second generation of digital cultural services. Based on the UK experience, the economics of mass-digitisation do not scale particularly well across sectors such as cultural heritage, and have tended to result in services which are broadly unsustainable in their own right. With the spectre of digital preservation looming large on the landscape, and overall reductions in the amount of public investment in culture, it is time to take a hard look at the economics which drive our services, with a particular emphasis on public benefit and enterprise over research.
Nick Poole is Chief Executive of MDA, the UK focus for best practice and standards in Collections Management. Prior to this, he was National ICT Adviser at the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA). In this role, he was responsible for advising Government and funders on programmes including the New Opportunities Fund Digitisation Programme and the Peoples Network project. Nick is an elected member of the Museums Association Council and sits on the national MA Ethics committee. He is a Trustee of the eLearning Group for Museums and of the Museums Copyright Group. Prior to working in museums, Nick worked in corporate finance and Public Relations. He holds degrees in Languages and Linguistics from Cambridge University. He took an MA in Philosophy of Science at University College London and in Fine Art at Central St Martin’s College, London.
