Demystifying Digital Scholarship 2022

Collecting and curating digital artifacts for an online collection or archives can unearth many ethical questions or dilemmas. Lorena Gauthereau, University of Houston, will talk us through considerations for digital repatriation as well as community-engaged and human-centered approaches to digital collections. After her short lecture she’ll facilitate a workshop on applying these considerations in Omeka S, a popular platform for creating and hosting digital collections, archives, and exhibits. You’ll be provided with a login to a live Omeka S instance where you can follow along with the workshop.
