This two hour workshop will focus on building strategies to provide access to born digital archival material.

Many practitioners in archives and libraries feel that they are not prepared to provide access to born digital records, but providing access is an important service and a key advocacy tool for developing digital processing and preservation programs. For the administrator, access is a visible service to communities as well as a proof of concept for allocating resources to digital processing and preservation. For the archivist, leaping to this step helps inform and build stronger workflows for acquiring, accessioning, and processing this material.

Designed as an opportunity for practitioners and beginners to learn from one another, the
workshop will take a collaborative approach, centering around group discussions guided by workshop facilitators and hands-on exploration of real-world access systems.

Topics will include how to frame born-digital access, preparing for providing access, risk assessment, policy considerations, and specific access methods, with an emphasis on user‐driven access throughout.

As part of this proposal we would like the participants to register in advance and if possible
survey them prior to the bootcamp on tools and skills they’d like to work on during the
afternoon breakout sessions. Through this survey we would also like to identify participants who have provided access who are willing to provide a short demonstration of their institution’s method.

This workshop is part of Learn@DLF (our brand new pre-conference workshop day). Learn more and register for this session: https://forum2018.diglib.org/learnatdlf/
