Upcoming Workshops 

Liberated Archives for Black Lives

Thursday, January 21, 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. (webinar)

Presenters: Teressa Raiford (Don't Shoot Portland)

Liberated Archives for Black Lives centers education and documentation for preservation, art and history. Through our partnership with the City of Portland Archives, Don’t Shoot Portland has been able to gain access to informational archives and relate them to our current systems - these educational assets are vital to sustaining social change. Participants of this webinar will learn how to connect with communities to build dialogue regarding the importance of local preservation of Black Civil Rights. They will learn from our workshop the types of events, materials and community partnerships we have used and ways to develop these relationships for the direct benefit of community access. The intended audience for this webinar would be archivists, historians, librarians, artists, activists, community educators and organizers.

The InterContinental San Francisco (room TBD)

Instructor: Jodi Allison-Bunnell

Many repositories are beginning to explore--or are even committed to--methods to help their researchers clearly understand how collections may be used. These methods range from Creative Commons licenses for finding aid metadata, licenses and standardized rights statements for digital collections, to Traditional Knowledge labels for Native American materials. This workshop will offer both background about and hands-on practice in engaging these issues.

The Community Archiving Workshop: Audiovisual Collections Care and Management

Wednesday, April 22, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The InterContinental San Francisco (room TBD)

Instructors: Dinah Handel, Moriah Ulinskas, Pamela Vadakan

Many librarians and archivists find themselves struggling to manage unique and aging film, video and audio recordings, and often lack the training and capacity to create, manage, preserve, and provide access to their audiovisual collections. The Community Archiving Workshop provides an opportunity for participants to engage in handsā€on processing, inspecting, and cataloging of audiovisual media – both analog and digital – and gain transferable skills to support their own collections. Most importantly, we will be working together to help a local organization gain intellectual and physical control of their endangered audiovisual collection.
