SAA Visual Materials Section Collaborative Workshop
“More Than Meets the Eye: Negotiating the Landscape of Born-digital Visual Materials”


Presenters: Stephen J. Fletcher, North Carolina Collection Photographic Archivist, and Patrick C. Cullom, Visual Materials Processing Archivist, Wilson Special Collections Library, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

The goal of this collaborative workshop is to raise attendees understanding of the inherent nature of born-digital visual records so they may confidently work with them.  Attendees should benefit from this gathering whether they work in smaller shops without technical support or within an environment that includes an information technology department.  The knowledge gained from this collaborative workshop will also help archivists work proactively with their donors, and be helpful in creating best practices and policies for managing born-digital visual collections.

The format will not follow a traditional workshop model.  Instead, the presenters will be leading a discussion about what they have done and learned during the past five years, tap into what participants have done and learned, and in the process all will be learning from our shared experiences.  The framework of the conversation will be the historical context and structure of born-digital photographs, followed by discussions about collection development issues, and the challenges of arrangement and description.  We will conclude with an open forum.

This program is free but limited to 100 people. Pre-registration will guarantee a seat.  Register here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LK7J3CC

Program - Trends in Archives PracticeTeaching with Primary Sources

Tamar Chute and Ellen Swain will introduce and facilitate a discussion of the newest book in the SAA series, Trends in Archives PracticeTeaching with Primary Sources. Edited by Christopher J. Prom & Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe ; featuring modules by Tamar Chute, Doris Malkmus , Sammie Morris, Ellen D Swain , and Elizabeth Yakel.

“As Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe notes in the introduction, "These three modules present a wealth of resources for meeting the challenges of primary source literacy instruction. They can be read start-to-finish to build a foundation for practice. Or, they can be dipped into as needed by the busy educator who needs practical ideas or inspiration for that next instruction session."

Finally, what if archivists were all reading the same book at the same time? Join your colleagues in the SAA’s program,  One Book – One Profession, reading, talking about, and building on ideas from Teaching with Primary Sources.
