From Responsible Custody To Responsible Stewardship, Michelle Light 2019 University of Nevada, Las Vegas

From Responsible Custody To Responsible Stewardship, Michelle Light

Library Faculty Publications

Light analyzes "responsible custody," one of eleven core values of archivists as described by the Society of American Archivists. After reviewing professional literature about postcustodial debates in the electronic records environment, advocacy for cultural sensitivity in native or colonial archives, and new models for stewardship associated with the community archives movement, Light proposes to revise this core value as "responsible stewardship."

Analog To Digital Preservation Of The “Women Trailblazers In The Law” Oral History Project, Camelia Naranch, Carol Wilson

Our presentation discusses the details of the analog to digital preservation process, whereby the physical collection was converted into digital formats suitable for long term archival storage as well as online access for the general public ...

Lightning Talk: The Language Archive: Migrating To An Easier, Sustainable Open-Source Solution., Jeroen Geerts 2019 Max Planck Institute Nijmegen

Lightning Talk: The Language Archive: Migrating To An Easier, Sustainable Open-Source Solution., Jeroen Geerts

Digital Initiatives Symposium

The Language Archive at the Max Planck Institute Nijmegen (https://archive.mpi.nl) is an extensive online repository of language resources. The archive was developed using in-house solutions, including metadata creation tools, depositing tools and an archive-browser. Development had been going on for more than 15 years, but was difficult and expensive to maintain. Additionally, some of these tools had were fairly complex to use, not meeting current user needs. Therefore, the choice was made to migrate to a more sustainable open-source solution, easier to use, maintain and to develop upon.

This presentation will provide insight in choosing a new ...

Mexican Romantic Postcards, Center for Southwest Research 2019 University of New Mexico

Mexican Romantic Postcards, Center For Southwest Research

Love in the Archives 2019

This collection of “cartulinas de amor” represents a little studied aspect of post-revolutionary Mexican culture and middle class ideals. These images and texts show the intimate part of society, the changing mores, views of family, home and society. The collection affords the opportunity to view many disciplines, including portrait photography, art, intimacy, love, courtship, family, family relationships, class and gender.

The collection consists of postcards that date from 1908 to the 1940s with the majority in the teens, 1920s and 1930s. Most are photographic portraits of anonymous subjects, while others feature songs, poems, or portraits of celebrities such as Lupe ...


Exploring Relationship Description: A Report From The Describing Relationships Workshop, Simmons College, February 2018, Katherine M. Wisser, Hayley Mercer, Mitch Nakaue, Adrienne Pruitt, Susan Pyzynski, Jessica M. Sedgwick 2019 School of Library and Information Science, Simmons University

Exploring Relationship Description: A Report From The Describing Relationships Workshop, Simmons College, February 2018, Katherine M. Wisser, Hayley Mercer, Mitch Nakaue, Adrienne Pruitt, Susan Pyzynski, Jessica M. Sedgwick

Journal of Contemporary Archival Studies

Archivists have included relationship information as a component of contextual and content description; however, they have not been called on to formalize that information. Rather, relationships have been identified and defined through informal narrative contexts, and depend on the archivist’s interpretative work and determination. Additionally, descriptive standards provide little guidance on the explicit description of relationships. To begin to address these issues, a group of archivists gathered in Boston to explore the challenges and opportunities in describing relationships. This paper serves as an account of that workshop from two perspectives: first, it documents the results of the day's ...

Unl Libraries Book Use By Broad Discipline (Social Sciences, Sciences, And Humanities): Circulations And Renewals: Books Acquired 2003/04 – 2007/08 Via Approval Plan Selection, Librarian Firm Order, And Ill Patron-Driven Acquisition, David C. Tyler, Brianna D. Hitt

White Papers: University of Nebraska-Lincoln Libraries

On numerous occasions over the course of the UNL Libraries’ continuing discussions concerning the allocation of collections monies, the UNL Libraries’ liaison librarians have made a variety of assertions, arguments, and claims concerning their patrons and their patrons’ needs. For example, the humanities librarians have repeatedly staked a claim to the humanities’ being the “book” discipline and have made a variety of assertions concerning humanities patrons and humanities books that could be treated as testable hypothesis.

For example:

1) Humanities patrons use books more than do other disciplines’ patrons;

2) Humanities patrons use more books than do other disciplines’ patrons ...

Book Review Of Algorithms Of Oppression: How Search Engines Reinforce Racism, Yvonne C. Garrett 2019 Drew University

Book Review Of Algorithms Of Oppression: How Search Engines Reinforce Racism, Yvonne C. Garrett

Journal of Contemporary Archival Studies

In recent years, the idea that the algorithms behind for-profit search engines are somehow neutral or unbiased has been heavily critiqued but for those who still hold onto a belief of objectivity and accuracy, Safiya Umoja Noble presents a clear and well-researched argument against such naiveté. These algorithms and the searches they drive are instead, Noble argues, a part of systemic structural oppression around race and gender. For Noble, Google Search’s algorithms are structured in a way that supports dominant narratives reflecting hegemonic frameworks and these same frameworks are an integral part of the structured oppression of women and ...

Archivists And Time: Conceptions Of Time And Long-Term Information Preservation Among Archivists, Reine Rydén 2019 Uppsala University

Archivists And Time: Conceptions Of Time And Long-Term Information Preservation Among Archivists, Reine Rydén

Journal of Contemporary Archival Studies

The issue of preserving information about nuclear waste for an extremely long period of time raises questions about ways to transmit knowledge to future generations. There is an ongoing discussion about the design of a message and the sustainability of different storage media. Information preservation in the really long term is, however, only partly a matter of technology; it is just as much about thought patterns. Since the work of archivists plays a key role, it is important to find out how archivists think about time and whether they have more developed conceptions of time and the future than other ...

Microfilm, Manuscripts, And Photographs: A Case Study Comparing Three Large-Scale Digitization Projects, Emily Lapworth, Sarah Jones, Marina Georgieva

Journal of Contemporary Archival Studies

This article is a case study comparing three large-scale digitization projects at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) Libraries: the Culinary Union Workers Local 226 Photographs, the Nevada Digital Newspaper Project, and the Entertainment Project. The authors compare the project management, workflows, and decision-making related to the many aspects of digitizing special collections and archives materials. The projects used both outsourced vendors and in-house labor and equipment to digitize microfilmed newspapers, mixed-materials manuscript collections, and photographic prints and negatives. Roles and responsibilities; grant funding; copyright, privacy, and confidentiality; arrangement; formats; and metadata are all discussed in relation to large-scale ...


Review Of Music Preservation And Archiving Today, Christina Taylor Gibson Ph.D. 2019 University of Maryland, College Park

Review Of Music Preservation And Archiving Today, Christina Taylor Gibson Ph.D.

Journal of Contemporary Archival Studies

Music Preservation and Archiving Today, a collection of essays edited by Norie Guthrie and Scott Carlson documents some of the most pressing issues confronting contemporary music archivists, particularly those working with popular music and their relevant communities. This review presents a summary of the essays included and considers the breadth of questions asked and answered therein. Particularly of interest are the relationships described and documented with those ordinarily excluded from the archive because of class, ethnicity, or race.
