So who is not sick of hearing about institutional repositories at this point? I think the term is getting a little too much overkill, but here's a local conference that looks interesting:

DASER: Digital Archives for Science & Engineering Resources
April 29-May 1 2005
College Park MD

According to the website, the conference will cover:

Impact of OA on the future of STM libraries;
Institutional repository models: what works and what doesn't;
Publisher-library collaboration strategies, now and in the near future;
Institutional repository object issues--theses, datasets, learning objects, etc.;
User needs and patterns related to digital libraries.

They are marketing it to various populations including systems people and
digital library professionals. It would be funny if they called them digital librarians.
