From Processing to Public Service: The Digital Humanities Center at The American Academy in Rome

Lavinia Ciuffa will present the Digital Humanities Center (DHC), the new infrastructure that will serve to streamline and unify the American Academy in Rome’s cataloging system and make publically available the Academy’s archival resources through a single, online interface by way of the Academy’s website. The presentation will describe the workflow required to inventory, cataloged, digitize and upload visual resources.

Artist-Run Archives: Developing a digital community archive with PAVED Arts artist-run centre

Shannon Lucky has been working with PAVED Arts (an artist-run centre (ARC) in Saskatoon, Canada focused on photography, audio, video, electronic, and digital arts) to develop a digital resource that meets the needs of artists and researchers while remaining sustainable for this non-profit organization. Her presentation describes the collaboration, the challenges that ARCs face to preserve and make their collection usable, and plans to develop a digital resource that will persist and grow with PAVED. Community archives are a vital part of this project; Lucky will describe how they organized an event to fill in gaps in the documentary record and capture oral histories of the PAVED community for inclusion in the archive.
