#s1b: Human scale web collecting for individuals and institutions (Webrecorder workshop)
Human scale web collecting for individuals and institutions (Webrecorder workshop)
Anna Perricci
Rhizome, United States of America
 
In this workshop we’ll start by covering some fundamental concepts in web archiving including: defining terms, exploring main components of web archiving workflows and ethics of collecting, discussing how one can scope a web collection and how to share what’s collected. After the groundwork is laid we’ll begin creating collections with Webrecorder.io.

Webrecorder (webrecorder.io) is a free, easy to use, browser based web archiving tool set provided by Rhizome. Rhizome, an affiliate of the New Museum in New York City, champions born-digital art and culture through commissions, exhibitions, digital preservation, and software development. Webrecorder’s development has been generously supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

With Webrecorder you can make high fidelity interactive captures of web content as you browse web pages. A “high fidelity capture” means that from a user's perspective there is a complete or high level of similarity between the original web pages and the archived copies, including the retention of important characteristics and functionality such as: video or audio that requires a user to press ‘play’, or resources that require entry of login credentials for access (e.g. social media accounts). Webrecorder can capture most types of media files, JavaScript and user-triggered actions, which are things that most crawlers struggle with or are unable to obtain.

Workshop attendees will be given an overview of Webrecorder’s features, then engage in hands-on activities and discussions. Further instruction will alternate with opportunities for participants to use the tools introduced and share their thoughts or questions. Instructions on how to manage the collected materials, download them (as a WARC file), and open a local copy offline using Webrecorder Player will also be covered in this workshop.

Human scale web collecting, which entails capturing web pages one at a time ‘by hand’, with Webrecorder is not expected to meet all the requirements of every web archiving program but can satisfy many needs of researchers or smaller web collecting initiatives. Webrecorder can be a great tool for personal digital archiving projects as well. Larger web archiving programs can benefit from using Webrecorder to capture dynamic content and user-triggered behaviors on websites. The WARC files created with Webrecorder can be downloaded and ingested to join WARCs that have been created using crawler-based systems. WARCs created with other tools can also be uploaded into Webrecorder.

With Webrecorder anyone can get started with web archiving quickly at no cost, which is empowering both to information professionals and their stakeholders. Please join us for this workshop to learn how to together we can make web archiving a more inclusive practice and use Webrecorder to meet the project’s mission to provide ‘Web Archiving for All!’

#s1c: The Argument Clinic: Elements of Persuasion for Librarians, Archivists, and Library Technologists
The Argument Clinic: Elements of Persuasion for Librarians, Archivists, and Library Technologists
Kate Dohe
University of Maryland Libraries, United States of America
 
Many library professionals are called upon to serve as advocates and public champions for programs, initiatives, or policies that advance the mission of libraries. As these initiatives inherently become more technological in nature, and their success (and continued funding) pivots around developing valuable community partnerships, it becomes increasingly essential that librarians, curators, and library technology staff have the rhetorical tools to form and express compelling arguments in support of abstract technical or critical concepts. Compounding this problem is the wide variety of audiences we must speak to with equal deftness--researchers, administrators, funders, colleagues, and the public. However, few librarians receive formal training in public speaking or argumentation, even though we are routinely called upon to deliver informational and persuasive presentations.  In short, it is hard to secure support for digital initiatives like preservation, open access repositories, or data curation if we cannot communicate why our stakeholders should value the work.

This fully interactive workshop will take attendees through the foundations of persuasive speaking, addressing the unique challenges of advocating for digital programs and technology-driven initiatives. Working in small cohorts, participants will develop short presentations by applying argumentation theory and public speaking techniques to the everyday challenges of digital libraries, coupled with constructive reflection and refinement. Led by a former competitive speech coach turned digital librarian, the learning outcomes of this reflective and responsive session will be heavily shaped by the desires and knowledge of other participants.

#s1d: Teaching the DLF Project Managers Toolkit
Teaching the DLF Project Managers Toolkit

1: University of Maryland Libraries, United States of America; 2: University of California San Diego, United States of America; 3: McGill University Library, Canada; 4: Utah State University, United States of America; 5: Johns Hopkins University, United States of America
 
For the first hour of the workshop, members of the DLF Project Managers Group Steering committee will teach workshop participants about various project management theories and how they apply to managing digital projects in a library environment. While the waterfall method, moving from task to task or milestone to milestone in a project, completing each stage before moving to the next, is commonly employed in digital projects, libraries’ project managers are borrowing strategies from IT development and employing agile project management techniques for digital projects. Agile project management provides an advantage in its iterative approach, where different portions of the project can be in multiple stages, concurrently. Workshop leaders will discuss how they employ these strategies separately or in combination to build successful workflows. Facilitators will also discuss project charters and project plans, and how they’ve implemented these documents to guide project work.

The second part of the workshop will include a hands-on opportunity to work with many of the tools featured in the DLF Project Managers Toolkit. Workshop leaders will demonstrate how they utilize some of the tools in the Toolkit, such as Basecamp, Google Apps, Jira, and Trello, at their institutions, workflows built around the tools, and elaborate on why they chose the tools they did, and challenges they experienced in implementing the tools. As discussions on the DLF-PMGroup listserv have documented, project managers have encountered both technical and human challenges when implementing new tools and workflows. In this section of the workshop, participants will create free accounts for some of the tools and experiment with setting up projects under the guidance of the facilitators. The workshop will conclude by having participants brainstorm which tools they might select to implement and how they might implement these tools at their institutions, or receive support to purchase licenses for paid tools.

#s1e: Design for Diversity: Towards More Inclusive Information Systems
Design for Diversity: Towards More Inclusive Information Systems
Amanda Rust, Des Alaniz, Julia Flanders
Northeastern University Libraries, United States of America
 
This workshop will explore issues of diversity and inclusion in cultural heritage information systems, using materials from the beta release of a pedagogical toolkit created by the Design for Diversity project at Northeastern University Libraries and hosted by the Digital Library Federation. Design for Diversity is an IMLS-funded project focusing on the ways in which information systems embody and reinforce cultural norms, asking how we might design systems that account for diverse cultural materials and ways of knowing. By centering information systems, we focus on issues such as the harm caused by cataloging standards that classify living, breathing people as “illegal aliens”, or data models that enforce strict gender binaries such as “woman or man” when human experience is much broader. To empower cultural heritage practitioners in their advocacy around these issues, and also better educate the next generation of systems designers, we created a teaching and learning toolkit with case studies, readings, and other educational materials.

This toolkit offers educators and learners a broad-based set of materials—including case studies, readings, assignment prompts, and annotated resources—that explore the challenges of building diversity and social justice into information systems at the deepest levels. The toolkit will help educate the next generation of systems creators and users through its use in both formal and informal educational environments. It also seeks to empower the current users of cultural heritage information systems—such as cataloging vocabularies, digital collections systems, data sharing standards, and online exhibit builders—to advocate for more inclusive practices in the design and use of those systems.

In this workshop we will share and discuss the results of the project’s environmental scan, giving participants a thorough grounding in the ways issues of diversity and inclusion play out in cultural heritage information systems. We will then share and discuss the lessons we’ve learned so far about creating good community partnerships so that underrepresented groups become core partners in digital projects. We’ll lead participants through a process of brainstorming the systems and technical infrastructure in their own institution where they might want to evaluate inclusivity and make change. We’ll end with workshopping potential models for making organizational change and how the Toolkit might be used to create change.

Participants in this workshop will explore issues of diversity and inclusion in the technical systems we use every day, and also add their experiences to the toolkit through feedback and suggestions for new topics. Join us to unpack these issues and leave with a plan for action, including how you might use the Toolkit as a resource for organizational change.

Islandora is an open source digital repository stack developed at the University of Prince Edward Island and now implemented and contributed to by an international community. 17 institutions working with a partner vendor, Born-Digital, are collaboratively creating a sustainable mode of installing, maintaining and updating Islandora that reduces dependencies on expert technical staff. Islandora Enterprise (ISLE) utilizes a set of Docker images to orchestrate an Islandora 7.x stack and keep its systems and services current, secure, and running with minimal effort. By design, ISLE separates an institution's data and customizations from its core systems, moving core components into Docker images. This simplifies and automates installation and maintenance for Islandora/Fedora environments. Individuals, institutions, and communities of practice all benefit: ISLE is an automated, reliable, redundant, and secure way to immediately use the Islandora stack to its fullest potential. ISLE continues to develop into a robust Docker ecosystem, introducing features and options that otherwise would require expert configuration.

The workshop will introduce the mechanics of ISLE, and use it to spin up a full Islandora 7.x stack (documentation and friendly ISLE teachers included).Participants with a wide variety of skill sets will be welcomed and supported in hands-on work with ISLE. Anyone who works with installation or maintenance of Islandora, people from small institutions with Islandora repositories, and folks considering migrating to Islandora are especially encouraged to attend. During the workshop, participants will find themselves engaging with other members of the community on a number of topics including future growth of ISLE to enhance features and deepen documentation. Participants need not have development skills to attend, but do need attention to detail and a willingness to follow instructions for working with the command line. A laptop is required. We will provide a positive learning environment.

While the workshop will focus on building a local development environment, ISLE also delivers a set of services and systems that are resilient, and ready to run a full Islandora stack to the highest production standards. For institutions considering migrating from a proprietary digital repository to a Fedora-based open source digital repository, ISLE offers an appealing jump-start alternative to manual installation of Islandora or other similar systems. For institutions already using Islandora, ISLE is expected to cut maintenance costs in half and improve overall security.

For more information about ISLE, see
https://github.com/Islandora-Collaboration-Group/ISLE/ and
https://islandora-collaboration-group.github.io/ISLE-Documentation/

For more information about Docker, see
https://docs.docker.com/v17.09/engine/docker-overview

Learning Outcomes
Attendees will gain a basic understanding of Docker, Docker images, and the Islandora stack.
Attendees will build an ISLE environment using Docker images and will leave with a functional Islandora environment for testing.
Attendees will build relationships via a very hands-on, iterative, and engaged workshop format and will leave with a cohort of contacts.

#s2c: Unpacking the Algorithms That Shape Our UX: Algorithmic Awareness as a Form of Information Literacy
Unpacking the Algorithms That Shape Our UX: Algorithmic Awareness as a Form of Information Literacy
Julian Kaptanian, Jason Clark, Tyler Bass
Montana State University, United States of America
 
Why does The Lion King keep showing up in my Netflix recommended section? Why are cute cat videos popping up more and more in my Facebook News Feed? Why does Amazon recommend I order kitty litter and toys at the same time for a prompt two-day experience? We, and our patrons, routinely engage in systems that predict, recommend, and speculate about our interests based on the digital fingerprint we provide with our link clicks and “likes”, but we all struggle understanding how and why those systems work as they do. Part of this struggle is recognizing how our technological experiences are increasingly mediated by algorithms - the code and computational processes embedded into our software. Recent work by scholars, such as Dr. Safiya Umoja Noble, has shown how algorithms exhibit implicit racial or sexist biases and reify societal prejudices. Moreover, the technical nature of algorithms and the lack of transparency surrounding them can be a challenge for novices.

The goal of this workshop is to create more informed instructors with a better understanding of internet feedback loops who can bring awareness of the implications of complex formulas guiding our technological world. Our Montana State University team, with grant funding from the IMLS, has conducted research in order to develop a white paper, a web-based teaching tool, and a standard curriculum to support the teaching of "Algorithmic Awareness": an understanding around the rules that govern our software and shape our digital experiences.

During the workshop, we will be teaching participants first principles around algorithms and their definitions, how to identify common algorithms in software experiences, and the implications of algorithms in shaping our world. This workshop will address three primary learning outcomes, allowing participants to: comfortably define algorithms while drawing upon common online interactions to support their personalized instruction; learn how Algorithmic Awareness as a concept fits into the ACRL Framework and can be promoted as a form of digital literacy; design a local instruction plan for teaching about algorithms at their institutions. Additionally, individuals may reuse grant deliverables (which will be released as Open Educational Resources) as learning modules and have a chance to ask about pedagogical uses for these modules.

The goal of the session will be to create actionable steps for teaching about algorithms in their own information literacy instruction. The target audience are professionals such as librarians or professors who can subsequently act as a resource to teach students about the implications of algorithms in hopes of a more transparent relationship with technological experiences. However, any participant with an interest in learning how algorithms mediate aspects of our digital experiences and an interest in understanding the invisible rules and processes embedded in our software will find value in the workshop and our discussions. The technology needs are a computer and projector to demonstrate our web search teaching tool and work through session exercises via the screen.

This workshop will consist of 2 one-hour segments, each providing the opportunity for hands-on development of digital pedagogy practices. This workshop will be led by members of the Digital Library Pedagogy working group (#DLFteach). It will also build on the ongoing, collaborative work of building an open resource for digital library pedagogy, described in the #DLFteach cookbook call for participation (bit.ly/cfp-dlfteach-cookbook).

The first hour will engage participants in an immersive introduction to digital library pedagogy as volunteers (identified prior to the workshop) lead “road tests” of lesson plans under development for the #DLFteach instructional cookbook project with participants in the role of learners. After participating in these road tests, attendees will have the opportunity to reflect on the instructional design principles incorporated into these lesson plans and provide feedback for improving them. 

The second hour will provide a deeper dive into two areas of instructional design that this working group has identified as being of interest to many digital library practitioners: developing learning outcomes and assessment techniques. The hour will begin with an introduction to these two phases of instructional design. We will then move to small group discussion and idea generation. Groups will work with examples of learning goals and comprehension checks developed by #DLFteach members prior to the workshop, then brainstorm additional examples of each.

This format is planned with two goals in mind: First, it is an experiment in flipping the model of instructional design workshops that this group has run at past Forums. Typically, our workshops have begun by presenting principles and led up to participants’ improvisational teaching demonstrations. This time, our goal is that, by leading off with teaching demonstrations, we will provide participants with a practical perspective on instructional design and an all-too-rare opportunity to observe others’ teaching in action. Second, we envision that the first hour of the event will be a focused, time-limited opportunity for those would like to contribute to the cookbook project as reviewers. Participants will be able to receive reviewer credit for feedback contributions during this session. For the second hour, rather than having participants design full lesson plans from start to finish as previous iterations of this workshop have done, we plan to focus on learning outcomes and assessment techniques as the “muddiest points” of instructional design. This will allow us to spend less time presenting theoretical background (valuable but sometimes difficult to apply) and more time exchanging ideas among practitioners with varying professional backgrounds and levels of experience.

#s3c: Privacy Literacy Instruction
Privacy Literacy Instruction
Eliza Bettinger(1), Paige Walker(2)
1: Cornell University; 2: Boston College
 
As a form of digital information literacy, privacy literacy empowers people to protect their own safety and dignity, as well as their freedom to seek information, correspond with whom they choose, and experiment with ideas and self-expression.

The goal of this workshop is to provide librarians with a foundation of knowledge from which to design privacy curricula or services specific to the needs of patrons at their own institutions.

Practically oriented and hands-on, the session will introduce participants to the use of digital privacy tools, but more importantly, will help participants build an understanding of what threats to privacy exist in various scenarios, and how to choose the right tool and strategy (or combination of tools and strategies) for a given scenario.

Learning Outcomes for Participants:
-- Be able to explain to patrons, colleagues, and community members how privacy benefits everyone in a free society, including people “with nothing to hide.”
-- Understand how surveillance threats -- both digital and analog -- differ according to the gender, race, sexuality, and poverty or occupational status of the surveilled.  
-- Understand differences between corporate and government mass surveillance, and between mass surveillance and targeted surveillance by either government or individuals. Understand differences in strategy for mitigating each of these types of surveillance.
-- Understand how freely available tools (e.g. password managers, tracker blockers, Tor, VPNs, encryption tools like Signal, anti-surveillance search engines and browsers, etc.) can be used to mitigate particular privacy and security risks, and when to recommend each to patrons.
-- Understand strategies for mitigating privacy risks when traveling through U.S. border-entry checkpoints.
-- Become aware of trusted sources for further learning.

In our discussion of tools and strategies, we will start with low-barrier options that anyone can apply to daily workflows improve privacy and security. Then, we’ll move on to options that people with greater risks may want to consider. For example:
-- Scholars and students who may be targeted for harassment due to their academic work, political writing or activities, and/or their racial, sexual, or gender identities.
-- Researchers who communicate with members of vulnerable communities via social media or other digital methods are concerned for the safety and anonymity of these communities.
-- Researchers and students who need to maintain their own anonymity while conducting digital research.
-- People who travel internationally.

The workshop will be taught by Paige Walker, digital collections & preservation librarian at Boston College, who has led privacy workshops for teenagers through Girls Who Code and is completing an MS in Cybersecurity, and Eliza Bettinger, digital humanities librarian at Cornell University, where she has implemented a series of well-received privacy workshops for faculty and students. Both are members of the instruction subcommittee of DLF’s Technologies of Surveillance Interest Group.How can academic librarians support patrons in understanding and mitigating their digital privacy risks? Through discussion, mini-lectures, and hands-on activities, participants will walk away with a stronger practical understanding of how digital surveillance works, and a foundation from which to build privacy-literacy curricula or reference services at their home institutions.

Our current systems of professional evaluation, metrics, and promotion often dictate what should be valued and recognized as scholarly labor, while their relative institutional weight means that they shape the kinds of work we do, as well as how, where, and with whom we do it.

Why content ourselves with existing, faulty evaluation metrics that are based on what’s easy to measure (citations, grant dollars awarded, Twitter mentions, etc.) rather than what matters to us (equity, collaboration, openness)? What if we instead defined the value of our professional activities according to their expression of our values, both individual and collaborative? What if our curricula were evaluated based on the diversity of their authors, the openness of the texts assigned, or their engagement with our local communities? What if open-access publishing, generous mentoring, and transparent and generous peer review were incentivized in our professional lives?

While existing research evaluation frameworks focus on what is quantifiable, the aim of this workshop is to reverse engineer indicators of excellence by first finding and focusing on a set of shared values and then exploring the ways in which those values might be performed in the practice of scholarly and professional activities. Our aim is to encourage moments of reflection in the creation of a scholarly object or in the performance of a scholarly practice, considering questions not only of audience and purpose, but of the values that drive the work. In the Value of Values workshop, participants will work together in small teams to articulate a shared set of values that bring them together as information professionals, and then co-create a sample framework against which they might assess and evaluate their own professional activities. The workshop aims to empower individuals, departments, and institutions to tell a more textured—and more relevant—story about the impact and importance of their work.

#s2e: Born Digital Access Bootcamp
Born Digital Access Bootcamp
Alison Clemens(1), Rachel Appel(2), Jessica Farrell(3), Greg Wiedeman (4)
1: Yale University Library, United States of America; 2: Temple University, United States of America; 3: Harvard Law School, United States of America 4: University at Albany, United States of America
 
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.

#s3b: Digital Mapping Ecosystems
Digital Mapping Ecosystems
Andrzej Rutkowski
university of southern california, United States of America
 
One of the most challenging aspects of the current landscape in digital mapping is navigating and deciding which platforms to teach with and why. This workshop offers one take on how to approach this landscape and emphasize process, method, and content over tools and software.

We will take data and historical maps and process them through 3 different sets of online software and produce a stand alone digital project. As we work through the data and software we will highlight connections between platforms, identify limitations, and discuss how students, faculty, and community members can best leverage them for their own work.

Learning outcomes:
Participants will gain basic knowledge and expertise with a range of mapping tools and software.
Participants will be able to articulate a strategy for how to discuss and teach mapping tools/software to students and faculty.
Participants will be able to effectively advocate for critically engaging with data by understanding how the software we use impacts access and engagement.

#s3d: Creating self-updating reports from 5 to 5000 datapoints: Using R and R Markdown in a library workflow
Creating self-updating reports from 5 to 5000 datapoints: Using R and R Markdown in a library workflow
Jacob Levernier
University of Pennsylvania Libraries, United States of America
 
R is a free and open-source scripting language with an active development community for performing data analysis and visualization. R Markdown is a conceptual extension of R that allows writing manuscripts *that contain code* (whether written in R, Python, Bash, or several other languages). A single report can, for example, update its figures and text when presented with an updated dataset. As part of a movement toward "literate programming," embedding code in prose text, R Markdown is increasingly used as part of scholarly communication workflows.

With new developments in the R landscape -- specifically, an ecosystem of packages that follow a common conceptual and design philosophies, collectively called the "tidyverse" -- R is an increasingly accessible language to learn. This workshop seeks to be useful for R beginners even as it is focused on those who have basic to intermediate experience with R.

I have taught the use of R for statistical analyses and data management and transformations to professional staff, faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students at a variety of experience levels. This workshop will focus on R fundamentals for 1.5 hours, followed by R Markdown for 1.5 hours. The R Markdown curriculum will include an introduction to Markdown itself, a lightweight markup syntax for writing manuscripts; fundamentals of embedding code in an R Markdown document; and, to conclude, advanced usage examples to inspire further learning.

Learners will be encouraged to bring a laptop with the free, open-source version of RStudio (https://www.rstudio.com/products/rstudio/download/#download) installed. Examples will be demonstrated live, so a laptop is not required, however. This workshop will have an interactive lecture format, rather than, for example, a breakout-groups format.

#m1e: (Decolonizing) Vocabularies
Presentations
 
Decolonizing LCSH in the Southern Levant
Grace Barth, Steven Holloway
James Madison University, United States of America
 
LCSH geographic terms for the Southern Levant (SL), specifically those about the occupied territories, are disingenuously politically anemic. Other national libraries and value vocabularies treat SL geopolitics differently. LoC must “play it safe” where its paymaster, U.S. Congress, is concerned. We conclude by examining decolonization strategies available to academic libraries.
 
 
Making meaning in libraries and museums: Indigenous visual culture, subject access, and controlled vocabularies
Michele Jennings
Ohio University, University of British Columbia
 
This presentation examines subject access and metadata creation for Indigenous visual culture in libraries and museums in the US and Canada. In this context, the existing body of literature surrounding visual resource description is brought into conversation with calls for self-determination and collaboration with Indigenous communities and their visual culture.
 
All the Gory Details of <type> Vocabularies That You Ever Wanted to Know
Patricia Lampron, Hannah Stitzlein, Ayla Stein, Myung-Ja K. Han
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Presentations
 
Recentering Community for Decentralized Digital Preservation: LOCKSS Community and Technical Strategy
Nicholas Taylor
LOCKSS Program, Stanford Libraries
 
This session will provide an opportunity to share and receive feedback on the new ways that LOCKSS could support digital preservation broadly, as well as reflect on the important intersections of community and technical strategy for a long-running digital preservation initiative.
 
 
User Directed Scrapbook Digitization
Shannon Willis, Marcia McIntosh
University of North Texas, United States of America
 
The Digital Projects Unit at the University of North Texas worked to understand user preferences in the digitization of scrapbooks. Applying a paper prototyping methodology, the researchers assessed and created institutional practices for scrapbook digitization based on user experience data rather than digitizer prerogative.
 
 
Beyond the Pages: Early Bound Works in Digital Collections
Barbara Laufersweiler
University of Oklahoma Libraries, United States of America
 
For early books, somewhere between simple image display and multispectral imaging, between metadata searches and virtual reality, there are practical, low-cost, high-impact practices available for digitization and digital collections. I will present examples and recommendations that can open these works to new scholarship and new engagement.

Las Vegas Lineup
The LVCVA’s Las Vegas News Bureau and the Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas, have captured the rich history of Las Vegas in their photo archives. The images range from celebrity photos to local birthday parties, and many of these images have never been identified. In the collaborative exhibition, “Las Vegas Lineup,” they are presenting their unidentified images to the public and asking members of the community to look at the photos and help identify their history!

Please stop by their table in the Pavilion during Tuesday's lunch break.

Kelli Luchs has worked as an archivist, specializing in photographs and negatives, for the past nine and a half years.  She has worked for the Las Vegas News Bureau, a division of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority for the past four and half years. Luchs has a bachelor’s in history from Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan and a master’s in Public History from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.  She is a member of the Society of American Archivists (SAA) and the Conference of Inter-Mountain Archivists (CIMA).  Luchs has several publications including, “An Interview with Marie McMillan: An Oral History,” “The New Guinea Campaign: A New Perspective Through the Use of Oral Histories,” and “Nightmare in New Guinea” a PBS documentary.

Ilana Short received a BA in Anthropology from the University of Tennessee, and an MA in Museum Studies from Johns Hopkins University. She began volunteering with a local historic site in high school, and decided early on that she wanted a career in museums. Currently, Ilana works as the Manager of Photography Collections at the Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas. However, she has experience with a wide variety of museum collections, and extensive work experience in both history and art museums.

Developing a Framework for Measuring Reuse of Digital Objects, an IMLS-funded project, conducted a needs assessment to determine key features of a future assessment toolkit that focuses on transformation.
 
 
Administrative, Archival, and Artistic: Broadening the Institution(al) Repository
Becky Thoms, Dylan Burns
Utah State University Libraries, United States of America
 
If the role of an institutional repository (IR) is to collect the scholarly and creative output of the institution’s faculty, staff, and students, where does that leave the institution’s (digital) archives? Librarians managing IRs are increasingly grappling with this issue as IRs grow and develop alongside other digital collections.
 
 
Collecting data for user-focused improvements to digital collections
Emily Lapworth, Su Kim Chung
University of Nevada, Las Vegas, United States of America

Communities of practice afford sharing and learning opportunities, often among participants from disparate disciplines. The University of Arizona Libraries supports multiple overlapping communities of practice in digital scholarship and data science. Through collaborations with external partners, academic libraries have the opportunity to develop communities of practice.
 
 
Tracing the Rise of the Authentic Community in the Digital Realm
Rhiannon Bettivia(1), Elizabeth Stainforth(2)
1: University of Illinois, United States of America; 2: University of Leeds, United Kingdom
 
The term ‘community’ carries widely debated discourses from various disciplines. Despite different disciplinary conceptions, ‘community’ is a political invocation, linked to access and inclusion. We explore the assumptions folded into discussions of community in the digital environment to understand how this term is used in relation to digital platforms.

Project-2-Program: Building Strong, Sustainable, and Adaptable Programs for Coordinated Digital Library Activity
Deirdre Joyce(1), Barbara Laufersweiler(2), Emily Shaw(3), Nabeela Jaffer(4), Jessica Wagner Webster(5), Louisa Trott(6)
1: Syracuse University Libraries, United States of America; 2: The University of Oklahoma Libraries; 3: The Ohio State University Libraries; 4: University of Michigan Library; 5: Baruch College, CUNY; 6: University of Tennessee, Hodges Library
 
Digital library projects can cross multiple organizational units within a given institution. Framing, organizing, and managing this work programmatically can facilitate economies of scale, establish and maintain clear roles and responsibilities, evaluate and prioritize high-impact work, and advocate for resources. How, then, do we create strong, sustainable digital programs?

At Syracuse University Libraries, the progression from project to program is defined in the liminal space emerging between grassroots, project-oriented efforts and a mandate supporting a more strategically understood digital library program. This presentation focuses on efforts to build a program while recognizing how progress has been anything but linear.

Several years of capacity building to support digital collections at the University of Oklahoma Libraries has brought organizational and platform improvements. The current approach meets project needs, but is not cohesive or scalable. The Digital Collections unit is at a tipping point from project orientation to program perspective.

The digital initiatives program at Baruch College Libraries grew around the decision to take on a large-scale digitization project. Now, as this initial digitization project winds down, we are leveraging the resources developed for the project to build a program infrastructure that supports digital project work in the long term.

Since UT-Knoxville’s Digital Library Program began in 2001, growth, staff turnover, and changes to organizational structure have contributed to a lack of cohesion in recent years. This year, we’ve begun to assess and redefine our work, moving away from project-focused and developing a more consistent programmatic approach.

DLF's mission is to advance the common good through the creative design and wise application of digital library technologies. What kind of community-building and concrete action is necessary to enact this mission now, in our present historical moment? Can our systems and technologies work toward social justice and against oppression? What lessons can we learn from other collectives? How might we more effectively work together to identify and dismantle the structural inequities holding back the liberatory potential of digital libraries, archives, and museums?  Join us for a conversation with organizers and experimenters.

DigiPres18 Keynote: #DigiPres18 Keynote
To See Ourselves as Others See Us: On Archives, Visibility, and Value
Snowden Becker
Why is the word “archive” now appearing on everything from shoes and shirts to soap and smartphone apps, even as archivists and preservationists struggle to convey the value and urgency of their work in a digital age? Has the cultural currency of “the archive” brought with it greater understanding of, or appreciation for, the labor necessary to create and maintain accessible collections? More than a century’s worth of evolving technologies and record-making practices, both personal and institutional, inform a critical examination of how we see ourselves, how others see us, and what that means for digital stewardship work in the years ahead. Becker manages the graduate degree program in audiovisual archiving and preservation in the Department of Information Studies at UCLA, where she also teaches courses in preservation and archival administration. She previously worked at Academy Film Archive, J. Paul Getty Museum, and Japanese American National Museum. Becker is pursuing a PhD in Information Science at University of Texas at Austin. She has an MLIS from UCLA Graduate School of Education & Information Studies and a BFA from Maryland Institute, College of Art. Snowden Becker’s research interests focus on how audiovisual materials are integrated into, accessed, and preserved as part of our larger cultural heritage. Her forthcoming dissertation, Keeping the Pieces: Evidence management and archival practice in law enforcement, addresses the property room as a type of archive, and examines how audiovisual recordings and file-based media are managed alongside material evidence in law enforcement organizations. That work has led into additional research projects related to the creation, management, and preservation of audiovisual evidence, including an IMLS-funded National Forum on data management needs arising from large-scale video recording programs such as police body-worn cameras.

Non-Custodial Digital Preservation for Public Records in Wisconsin
Hannah Wang
Wisconsin Historical Society, United States of America
 
This talk will address two measures taken by the Wisconsin Historical Society to provide management oversight for the digital preservation of electronic records held by state and local agencies, including Digitization Project Guidance and an internal policy for appraising offers of surrogate records.
 
 
Greek to Me: Using Emulation to digitally re-publish the Chora of Metaponto: The Necropoleis
Kathleen Forrest, Josh Conrad, Birch Griesse, Nicole Lumpkins
University of Texas iSchool, United States of America
 
Our research explores the use of emulation as a digital preservation strategy, bringing new life to historical scholarship by making it newly accessible in digital formats. We explore the challenges of working with emulation—technical barriers, intellectual property, and the complexities of re-producing text using fonts in ancient languages.
 
 
What about the Social Space?
Edward Gloor
University of Illinois, United States of America
 
Video games are important cultural landmarks, and the accurate preservation of them will have a meaningful impact on future research. Massively-Multiplayer Online Games pose a new challenge for preservation professionals in that they do not only require preservation of objects. It's also necessary to preserve the Social Space.
 
 
The challenges of validating half a million TIFF files from tape. How hard can it be?
James Mooney, Edith Halvarsson
The University of Oxford, United Kingdom
 
What were the challenges at Oxford when attempting to validate half a million TIFF image files from tape storage? The poster describes the stages that were involved, including handling large volumes of data, scaling JHOVE to maximise processing power, issues with JHOVE XML output, and transcribing to CSV with XSLT.
 
 
Snapshots, Breadcrumbs, and Coercive Documentation: Institutionalizing Digital Preservation Back-up Plans for Student Work
Roxanne Shirazi, Stephen Zweibel
The Graduate Center, City University of New York, United States of America
 
Dissertations and theses with digital components present challenges for both access and preservation. This poster will present our library’s preservation workflow for student works, one that attends to the digital files while integrating what we might call “coercive documentation” into the accompanying manuscript text.
 
 
The digital librarian: the liaison between digital collections and digital preservation
Marina Georgieva
UNLV Libraries
 
It’s common misconception digital librarians are involved only in digitizing historic materials. In fact managing digital projects is only their visible role. Once it’s over, librarians put on their invisibility cloaks and embrace their new role of information architects directly engaged in the digital preservation process of archiving master files.
 
 
Unconvential Tactics for Distributed Digital Preservation
Nathan Tallman
Penn State University, United States of America
 
As our collective cultural heritage digital content increases into the petabytes and beyond, our current practices and strategies for digital preservation may be unsustainable. The open source InterPlanetary File System from Protocol Labs, together with blockchain and torrents may be the future. More Product Less Process for Digital Preservation.
 
 
Search Results: 0 — The Unseen Cost of Inaccurate Data and Subpar Solutions
Mark Ian Anderson, Farica Chang
Anderson Archival, United States of America
 
What sound does a digital collection make if it’s preserved without functionality? The voices of history don’t resonate when users access a poor interface with inaccurate search results. Seeking low-budget solutions to make collections available quickly does more harm than good due to poorly-developed software and inaccurate OCR.

Las Vegas Lineup
The LVCVA’s Las Vegas News Bureau and the Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas, have captured the rich history of Las Vegas in their photo archives. The images range from celebrity photos to local birthday parties, and many of these images have never been identified. In the collaborative exhibition, “Las Vegas Lineup,” they are presenting their unidentified images to the public and asking members of the community to look at the photos and help identify their history!

Please stop by their table in the Milan Ballroom during Wednesday's NDSA reception.

Kelli Luchs has worked as an archivist, specializing in photographs and negatives, for the past nine and a half years.  She has worked for the Las Vegas News Bureau, a division of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority for the past four and half years. Luchs has a bachelor’s in history from Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan and a master’s in Public History from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.  She is a member of the Society of American Archivists (SAA) and the Conference of Inter-Mountain Archivists (CIMA).  Luchs has several publications including, “An Interview with Marie McMillan: An Oral History,” “The New Guinea Campaign: A New Perspective Through the Use of Oral Histories,” and “Nightmare in New Guinea” a PBS documentary.

Ilana Short received a BA in Anthropology from the University of Tennessee, and an MA in Museum Studies from Johns Hopkins University. She began volunteering with a local historic site in high school, and decided early on that she wanted a career in museums. Currently, Ilana works as the Manager of Photography Collections at the Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas. However, she has experience with a wide variety of museum collections, and extensive work experience in both history and art museums.

#r3a: Standards & Frameworks
Presentations
 
So Many Standards, So Little Time
Jimi Jones
School of Information Sciences, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, United States of America
 
This presentation is a discussion about my doctoral dissertation work, which is a qualitative analysis of the sociotechnical factors that underpin two examples of video digitization standards development: how they are developed by large, well-funded institutions/associations and how they are developed “bottom up” by the open-source realm.
 
 
Shared Challenges: Digital Preservation Findings via Formal Assessments of Digital Preservation Practice and Programs
Amy Rudersdorf
AVP
 
AVP has performed digital preservation gap analyses over the past twelve years, referred to as “assessments.” This presentation provides a basis for assessing and addressing gaps in attendees’ own digital preservation practice, and for the community as a whole to consider when determining where to devote collective resources.
 
 
The Gold (AU)DRIPSS Framework: Factors for a Maturing Digital Preservation Strategy
Brett Currier, Courtney R. Butler
Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, United States of America
 
As archivists, librarians, and preservationists develop and implement digital preservation strategies, they are often faced with choices and tradeoffs that are difficult to articulate to stakeholders. In this presentation, we will discuss the Gold (AU)DRIPSS framework as a way to consider prioritizing different goals and discuss those goals with stakeholders.
