Presenters:
Slavko Manojlovich, Associate University Librarian (Information Technology and QEII Library), Memorial University of Newfoundland
Slavko is responsible for managing all the automation programs for the Memorial University Libraries including the Digital Archives Initiative, one of Canada’s premier and heavily used collection of digitized cultural, historical and research resources and the university’s Research Repository, comprised of born digital scholarly papers, presentations and a growing number of electronic theses. He is also a member of the Canadian Council of Academies Expert Panel on “Memory Institutions and the Digital Revolution”.

Benoit Pauwels, Head of Systems and Innovation Team for the Archives and Libraries, Université Libre de Bruxelles
Benoit has been involved since the beginning of the century in the setup and management of various digital repositories for the Université Libre de Bruxelles, based on a variety of software packages: ETD-db, DSpace, ContentDM. Recently we have started a mass digitisation program for PhD theses, in a first instance, to be followed by other scholarly material, photograph collections in support of academic courses and administrative and cultural heritage archives of the University. With the exponential growth of the number of digital objects to manage and to preserve, we undertook a study on distributed digital preservation, resulting in a pilot setup of Archivematica as file format normalisation platform for all born digital or digitised objects managed by the Archives & Libraries, and in an international Private LOCKSS Network of 5 institutions (in 3 different countries).
