Collecting institutions and archives now face the same urgent challenges in acquiring, preserving, processing, and presenting born-digital material. How can institutions approach these challenges? What kinds of human resources are necessary?
Using recent initiatives as a starting point, the CCA and Yale are hosting a one-day workshop where participants can share the research, guidelines, and workflows they have developed. Specific topics include appraising and transferring born-digital material, arranging and describing digital archives, and publishing and exhibiting born-digital content. In keeping with the workshop format, attendees are asked to participate actively in all sessions. For a full schedule, please visit the icam website.
Workshop participants are also invited to a tour of the CCA’s exhibition Archaeology of the Digital: Complexity and Convention, now on view at the Yale School of Architecture, on Thursday, 9 March, from 6pm to 7pm.
RSVP to Suzanne Noruschat by 3 March.
