If you are interested in learning more about this project please join your MWDL colleagues, Jeremy Myntti, Head of Digital Library Services, and Matt Brunsvik, Assistant Head of Digital Operations from the J. Willard Marriott Library at the University of Utah on Wednesday, July 26 (2:00pm MST), for a webinar that will provide a brief overview of the migration process for Marriott's digital library platform as well as a presentation on the workflows, tools, and techniques used during the process. In addition, there will be a demonstration of the new software used to create and add to collections in the Marriott's new digital asset management system.
