Presentation 1
Community Engagement, and the Building and Burning of Bridges
Caitlin Goodman
Swarthmore College (formerly Free Library of Philadelphia)
Digital surrogates expand access, but digitization doesn’t build relationships. Organizers know relationship-building involves trust, communication, and collaboration. Most pointedly, it requires an institution to get out of its own way. In an ethical engagement project the responsibility of project team members is to protect the priorities of community partners.
Presentation 2
Assessing the Program Revision and Implementation
Jesse Johnston(1), Ricardo Punzalan(2)
1: Archives Research and Consulting Group; 2: University of Michigan School of Information
We report on our 2021-22 work to assess the implementation of the “Amplifying Unheard Voices” revisioning of the DHC program. CLIR’s changes to the DHC program aimed to increase support for less frequent grantseeking organizations and ensure collections documenting underrepresented groups were preserved in the digitized historical record.
Presentation 3
Digital Collections for Multiple Audiences: Transcription, Translation, and Storytelling
Michelle DiMeo, Annabel Pinkney
Science History Institute, United States of America
Through Google Analytics and user interviews we learned that scholarly and public audiences need different things. To address this, we transcribed and translated the historical documents and built a custom UI for viewing. We also wrote online magazine articles, created public programming, and collaborated with both local and international communities.
