The new dates for the DASER-2 Summit have now been set:
Friday through Sunday
2-4 December 2005.
Th location and conference hotel will remain the same.
The DASER (Digital Archives for Science & Engineering Resources--pronounced like "laser" with a "d" for the "l") arose from a need of science librarians and science information professionals to communicate and collaborate with publishers and vendors in the STM fields. With support from the Scientific and Technical Information Systems Special Interest Group (SIG STI) and the New England Chapter of ASIST (NEASIST), the first DASER Summit was held at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in November 2003.
This web site is an expansion of that initial meeting. The members of SIG STI are now partnering with the Potomac Valley Chapter of ASIST (PVC) to bring us the second DASER Summit, details of which you will find elsewhere on this site.
Information on the DASER-2 Summit will be posted to this blog regularly, as will other related issues of importance to those supporting the STM research structure, as noted above.
In the mean time, feel free to browse, comment, or even send me email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with ideas, suggestions, questions, etc.

President-Elect of ASIST
