Along with my colleague Itza Carbajal, I will be co-moderating a panel at this year’s Texas Conference on Digital Libraries. Our panel, “Post-Custodial Praxis at LLILAS Benson: Lessons in Digitization, Access, and Community Partnerships,” brings together practitioners from LLILAS Benson and see of our partners on post-custodial projects of various kinds. The panel will provide helpful information on designing and managing post-custodial projects, as well as shed light on some important collections themselves.
My presentation, “Institutionalizing post-custodial digitization at LLILAS Benson”, will cover some of the digitization workflows we have implemented in Mexico, and some lessons I have learned from several years of working on post-custodial projects.
Our panel will be held Thursday, May 17th at 1:00pm in the Big Tex auditorium, 1.102. See the TCDL 2018 program page to see our panel and add it to your calendar using Sched.
This October I was fortunate enough to attend the 2017 Digital Library Federation Forum in Pittsburgh, with the support of a DLF Student and New Professional Fellowship. DLF is a very progressive, critically minded organization, and the Forum was a wholly worthwhile experience. I wrote a post for the DLF blog about a few panels which I found particularly stimulating and relevant to my work.
