Join ASA, ARANZ and PARBICA in Ōtautahi | Christchurch, Aotearoa this October to share your experiences & strategies for Opening the Archives through access, engagement or other innovative avenues.
The conference aims to bring together a wide range of views on what ‘opening’ the archives means; how this has been, or might be, achieved, and when it should not. It is also a space to explore the challenges and opportunities posed by new technologies, increased accessibility, and the acknowledgement of historical and cultural sensibilities.
People can present online or in-person.
Topics could include, but are not limited to:
- Digital accessibility
- Access to and repatriation of displaced archives
- Privacy and ethical considerations
- Cultural considerations
- Audiences: who is missing?
- Social responsibility
- Reparative description
- Indigenous self-determination
- Teaching with archives
- Community outreach and access
- Archival education
- Using technology to improve engagement
- Impact of digital transformation on archival concepts
- Artificial intelligence and machine learning
