Tu1a: DLF Forum Fellows Present Their Work
In this session, 2022 Forum Fellows will be presenting their work in the style of lightning talks (5 minutes each), followed by time for questions from the audience. 

EDI Webinars to Action: An Elevator Debrief
Jerrell Jones
There has been an influx of EDI webinars, conference presentations, workshops, and much more to refocus on EDI in our institutions. However, the process of moving from absorbing slide decks full of useful information to tangible action remains elusive for many institutions. This presentation will provide a handful of actionable steps to assist organizations in making their institutions equitable, diverse, and inclusive. Because EDI work should be ongoing, institutions can struggle with sustained attention and resource allocation to these initiatives. Approaches involving a tangible change in EDI can be challenging, but organizations participating in digital humanities are uniquely positioned to do this work. Solutions regarding these challenges, among others, will be briefly covered in this presentation. After the Zoom room has closed, hyperlinks are bookmarked, and good intentions are set, EDI material can quickly fade away into the background. This presentation will offer some suggestions that could help those good intentions turn into good work.

Building Community around Digital Scholarship
Rolando Rodriguez
This brief talk will highlight the community-making efforts of The Digital South, a UNC-CH Libraries’ project around digital pedagogy and research on the American South. This initiative has facilitated campus conversations that bring together a range of departments, technologies, and collections needed to advance this type of scholarship across Carolina.

Community Archives: Reflections From an Oakland Community School Project Research Fellow 
Evelynn Cuautle
This presentation will focus on my reflections as a recent graduate who participated in the inaugural Black Panther Oakland Community School: Community Archives, Activism, and Storytelling Summer 2021 Research Fellowship cluster. The ongoing pandemic shifted the cohort’s experience from interacting with physical archival material, collected by independent scholar Angela LeBlanc-Ernest, to developing a virtual educational and experimental community space. Deep reflection on this experience and my continued involvement with this Black Digital Humanities project has prompted further questions and a continued exploration of community archives, education, history, equity, and love, which I begin to consider in this presentation.

Passion, Grit and Microfilm: Digitizing Local History at a Public Library
Julie Rosier
In a small-town library of Western Massachusetts, a very enthusiastic intern found a two-drawer cabinet full of microfilm reels next to an inoperable microfilm reader. This lightning talk will describe her journey to transform key resources from this library’s special collections, including a run of historical newspapers spanning five decades, into a publicly accessible digital archive.

How Academic Libraries Can Positively Impact Retention Rates on College Campuses
Ebony Peterson
The literature is quite scarce on the topic on how academic libraries can positively impact retention rates on college campuses. The library is an intricate part of student success. Without it, qualified information specialist, and other support staff, the mission of the institution will not thrive. This brief overview will explore how the library helps to increase student success and retention rates at college campuses, with a special focus on the most vulnerable student population, first time-full-time-first-generation students. The purpose of this research is to examine the role academic libraries play in the effort to support increasing retention rates and what specific usage of the library contributes to first-time first-generation students returning.

Tu2a: Come Swim in the OCEAN: Learn About CLIR’s New Collaboration with the Open Copyright Education Advisory Network
Over the past several years, Columbia University Libraries’ Copyright Advisory Services, the Copyright Office at the University of Michigan Library, and an advisory group of experts ranging from diverse cultural heritage and educational organizations developed a new online copyright education initiative for cultural heritage professionals. Studies funded by LYRASIS and Alfred P. Sloan Foundation confirmed that there is a convergence of copyright issues across museums, libraries, archives, research, scholarship, and education, their impact on day-to-day and strategic decisions, as well as the distinct ways in which copyright turns up across these sectors. The aim of this new copyright education initiative is to address these points of convergence.

The initiative was piloted In 2021 and it was a tremendous success. Five online learning opportunities were offered in less than eight months that attracted over 1,500 registrants. The Pilot identified a surge in the need for copyright education, how to design online copyright education programs, and that success in achieving education at scale was dependent on removing the barriers to education, such as fees and subscriptions. 

In 2022, the initiative relaunched as OCEAN with the mission of providing educational opportunities about copyright to cultural heritage professionals in a free learning environment.
Entirely aligned with CLIR’s overarching mission, OCEAN’s vision is to inform and empower the greater cultural heritage community, recognizing that copyright and related issues are foundational to our networked, digital world, emphasizing equitable access to reliable, relevant, understandable information. It seeks to educate at scale, thereby raising the level of expertise about rights issues to meet the challenges of preservation and access to collections in a complex world. This session will provide a general update including some lessons learned from the pilot and our new collaboration with CLIR. This session will include a briefing and focus  dialogue and discussion to explore how we can address needs and interests regarding copyright and related matters for cultural heritage organizations.

Learning Outcomes
Attendees will
(1) gain insights into the current state of copyright literacy,
(2) receive information about how to access these trustworthy new educational resources to become empowered, and
(3) share feedback that can help shape the future work of the initiative so as to gain maximum benefit.

Working with What You Got: Creating a Re-Use Database with Existing Tools in the Age of Covid
Lindsay Skay Whitacre, Felipe Estrada-Prada
Harvard University Graduate School of Education, United States of America
 
The Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) launched an initiative to improve discoverability and re-use of course-based digital resources.

Libraries and archives have differing opinions on how much effort to put into content description. Yet, descriptive practices meant to reduce processing time and increase exposure to collections can have unintended impacts on long-term user discovery. This project tests minimal and full description to determine the effects on discoverability.

A Digital Preservation Reckoning: If we don’t lead with values, where do we end?
Courtney Mumma(1), Bradley Daigle(2), Sibyl Schaefer(3), Hannah Wang(4), Andrew Diamond(2)
1: Texas Digital Library; 2: APTrust; 3: Chronopolis, UC San Diego; 4: Educopia Institute
 
Digital stewards increasingly face institutional reluctance to invest in values-aligned open infrastructure. Decision-makers are lured by for-profit claims of one-size-fits-all technologies and underfund their local development and staff resources. This approach is risky: outsourcing a core library function undermines staff expertise in the library and imperils its holdings and resources.

We will kick off the conference with a keynote from Dorothy Berry entitled, “Keeping Whose History, For Whom: Writing the Stories Digital Preservation Tells.”

The increasingly reclamation of words like "archive" and "museum" by racially and culturally marginalized digital curators brings up questions of digital ownership, permanence, and preservation. The role digital preservation plays (or doesn't) in the creative organization of history storytelling is complex and often either invisible or ignored. The responsibilities digital preservationists have to creator communities are, perhaps, even more complex with competing macro views of long-term preservation for future access and micro views of creator autonomy and divestment from supporting/controlling institutions. This talk will explore these complexities while imagining a collaborative environment for creators to make informed decisions about how and why their digital stories are preserved.

Title: “So that Future Organizers Won’t Have to Reinvent the Wheel”: Activating Digital Archives for Liberatory Uses

Description: Grounded in the emerging field of critical archival studies, this talk will look toward the radical politics of independent, minoritized identity-based community archives to envision new liberatory possibilities for memory work.
Based on participant observation and interviews with users at community archives sites, the talk will explore how communities activate digital collections to build solidarities across and within communities, trouble linear progress narratives, and disrupt cycles of oppression. Caswell will introduce a new concept, corollary records, to describe the activation of archives that document a precedented moment in time, that is a time in which the same or similar oppressions that are currently occurring have also previously occurred.She will then argue that at their most useful, records can be activated in corollary moments in the present, so that community members can learn activist tactics and strategies and get inspiration to keep going. “We have been here before, we have survived this before, we have resisted before,” corollary records assert, “here’s how.” She will then give concrete examples of archives catalyzing liberatory uses of corollary records through artists and activist residency programs, advocacy efforts, and community-led mutual aid projects. Caswell will explore the temporal, representational, and material aspects of liberatory memory work, ultimately arguing that archival disruptions in time and space should be neither about the past nor the future, but about the liberatory affects and effects of memory work in the present.

Not all cryptographic hashes are created equal. While some do not provide security, the more sophisticated the checksum, the more computational intensive it becomes. This means verifying the checksums uses more electricity, increasing the carbon footprint. This presentation compares the carbon intensity of common checksums to help make informed decisions.

DHC Closing Plenary
The DHC Symposium concludes with the closing plenary panel Real World Ripples: Current Events & Digitizing Collections.

Thoughtfully planning for and executing successful digitization initiatives can take years. But when centered on digitizing hidden collections, projects often hold the potential to illuminate the present in unpredictable ways. How can we keep digitization operations going for the long term while leaving room to be flexible and–when necessary–to regroup in order to adapt to changing circumstances and needs? In what ways can our digitization strategies and digitized collections deepen public engagement with contemporary issues? How can we keep our digital collections growing while still supporting efforts to raise awareness about the value of using cultural materials to understand current events? Panelists will offer their perspectives on questions like these, followed by a moderated discussion and audience Q&A.

PrisonPandemic: Scaling and Adapting Document Management During COVID-19
Joanne DeCaro, Alexis Rowland, Elvia Arroyo-Ramirez, Keramet Reiter, Kristin Turney, Naomi Sugie, Gabe Rosales, Mariela Villalba Madrid
University of California - Irvine, United States of America
 
The United States’ now half century project of hyper incarceration has resulted in innumerable tragedies, much of which can be known only through the voices of those directly impacted. PrisonPandemic represents a unique archive of narratives produced and collected in an unprecedented era of mass death—the COVID-19 pandemic. UCI PrisonPandemic is a digital archive built to preserve the stories of people incarcerated in California prisons during the COVID-19 pandemic. PrisonPandemic amplifies the often inaccessible or silenced voices and experiences of the incarcerated. We will discuss the challenges of collecting and managing PrisonPandemic’s corpus that are inherent with working with a highly vulnerable and marginalized population.
