Born Digital Access Bootcamp

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Please note there will NOT be laptops available.  Attendees are encouraged to bring their own laptops for the workshop. This is a paid pre-conference workshop that you must register for.

The UMDCC Born Digital Access Bootcamp will focus on building strategies to provide access to born-digital material.

Designed as an opportunity for practitioners and beginners to learn from one another, the workshop will take a collaborative approach with group discussions on relevant topics guided by workshop facilitators, followed by hands-on demonstrations of born-digital access systems and breakout discussion sessions.

Topics will be selected through surveying workshop participants and through forum discussion, but will ultimately address how policies, copyright/risk assessment, user needs, reference interactions, processing workflows, donor relations, advocacy, and other archival functions affect how, when, and what we provide access to, with an emphasis on user-driven access throughout.
