CNI’s wide-ranging agenda includes work in digital preservation, data intensive scholarship, teaching, learning and technology, and infrastructure and standards development and since its founding has facilitated interaction and dialogue between librarians and information technologists in areas of common interest.
Prof. Lynch, holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California, Berkeley, and is an adjunct professor at UC Berkeley’s School of Information. He is an internationally recognised expert in the area of networked information and has a unique understanding of the cultural trends and technological developments impacting today’s global information ecosystem. In his talk Prof. Lynch will discuss the role of institutions in serving as digital stewards of the cultural and intellectual records they hold in trust and what stewardship means in the digital age. He will explore the challenges facing higher education and research sectors in developing the necessary strategies and supporting infrastructure to deal with these demands effectively, affordably, and at the requisite scale.
