Peter Chan (Stanford University), Don Mennerich (New York University), and I are planning a CURATEcamp around sharing and discussing born-digital workflows. I’m happy to announce that registration is now open!
Brooklyn Historical Society (128 Pierrepont Street, Brooklyn) will host the day-long event on Thursday, April 23rd to bookend NYU’s co-hosting of Personal Digital Archiving 2015 on April 24- 26th.
CURATEcamp will differ from the usual curate format. The morning session will consist of short pre-scheduled presentations. After a “birds-of-a-feather” lunch break, the afternoon will breakout, CURATE-style, into streams.
*This will be a highly participatory event. Due to space limitations, registration is limited to individuals with active digital preservations projects to discuss. If you are a student studying digital preservation and you’d like to attend, please email me (jk133 at nyu.edu). A limited number of volunteer slots are available. For those of you who cannnot attend, we’ll be making notes available aftewards on the CURATEcamp wiki.
This event is supported by the National Digital Stewardship Residency in New York Program, funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and being implemented by the Metropolitan New York Library Council in partnership with Brooklyn Historical Society.
