Ithaca, NY Library exhibits are a valued cultural tradition that began as a way to call attention to significant, new or notable library books and objects on tables and in exhibit cases. As more collections are born digital, and as libraries put more collections online, library displays have moved online to showcase masterpieces that were often previously hidden from regular public view.

Ithaca, NY Please join colleagues on July 20, 2010 from 9 AM-5 PM for a no-cost, one-day regional Fedora conference.
In a tough economy, it’s especially important to make sure we stay in touch with our local colleagues in the Fedora Commons community. This day-long conference in Massachusetts will give us an opportunity to hear from other Northeast Fedora users. More importantly, it will give us an opportunity to talk to each other and swap ideas and thoughts about the way we use Fedora Commons.
