SGMLNY Meeting - Oct 20

The SGML Forum of New York invites you to attend:

Leaping the Yawning Chasm - Converting Paper to SGML

As the world rushes to catch up with traditional publishing in the use of
SGML/XML for rich data representation, the publishing industry itself is
adapting to new electronic publishing paradigms. Large legacy data
collections - such as those in libraries - amassed in the pre-electronic
publication era, which, it was believed, could safely live forever as paper,
are being migrated to SGML/XML and delivered electronically. The post-facto
application of metadata to existing bodies of work presents a unique set of
issues and challenges.

In this session we hear one of the most venerable and respected libraries in
the world describe how they are using SGML/XML technology to make their
collections available worldwide. And we hear from one of the world's
foremost data conversion services on how they address the issues and
challenges relating to getting masses of data on plain, old, paper into
richly tagged SGML/XML.
