Having attended a really interesting session on Shibboleth and Federated Access, I am currently listening to the plenary about the other parallel sessions.
It is proving to be a useful and interesting conference. What is nice is that the presentations and other reports will be available on the conference blog.
Though the content of the conference is on digitisation and e-content, it is interesting how the focus of much of the conference is on web 2.0 and (unsurprisingly) Google. I suspect that this is down to the focus on end users’ needs rather than coming from an institutional approach.
A lot of talk about elephants as well, of which I seemed to have missed somehow the connection.
The plenary has finished and we are now looking at tomorrow.
One thought on “JISC Digitisation Conference Plenary Session Day One”
Agree with the coments on the meeting today. I guess you were not alone in missing the ‘elephant’ reference see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elephant_in_the_room
Essentially something big going on, we all know about it but are not facing / dealing with it.
