University of California - Irvine, United States of America
UCI PrisonPandemic is a digital archive built to preserve the stories of people incarcerated in California prisons during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Presentation 2
Leveling the Playing Field: Developing a Practice of Representation for Women Athletes in Digital Collections
Cara Key
Oregon State University, United States of America
Seeking to dismantle legacy practices in our digital repository that normalized men’s sports while diminishing women’s, OSU Libraries piloted a new description policy in a collection of athletics materials in the Oregon Digital repository. The project aimed to promote gender equity while maintaining accurate and consistent metadata.
