Wanted: a Canadian librarian to give a keynote on digitization and metadata. Maybe my digipres.club friends can recommend some good candidates?

@dbs @anna @sabrams I don't mean this as a total chump move but I immediately think of all of my fellow systems archivists (who are almost all Canadian): https://www.artefactual.com/team/
@dbs @anna @sabrams but I don't mean to just hype the place I work for!! It's just where I get my primary interactions with amazing Canadians, and several have over a decade of experience each in that topic!
@ashley @anna @sabrams Not a chump move at all; one of my first thoughts was about artefactual!
One challenge, though, is that the group is looking specifically for a librarian; I believe they already have lined up an archivist.
@dbs @anna @sabrams Oooooh, gotcha! Sorry, down here there is a much fuzzier line between archivist and librarian -- I should have read your request more closely
@ashley @anna @sabrams Personally I think the fuzziness is justified when it comes to digitization in particular!
