Free to conference registrants; $50 / $25 (students) for those not registered for the conference. Badge required for admission.

PLENARY 1: Getting Our House in Order: Moving from Diversity to Inclusion
CoSA President Matt Blessing and SAA President Dennis Meissner invite you to this lively opening session that includes presentation of key awards and installation of SAA’s newest Fellows.


SAA President Dennis Meissner has written "We remain too white, too traditional, perhaps too blind to the varieties of diversity that surround us." Archivist of the United States David Ferriero concurs and has been addressing this at the local and national level.  He will report on work that is being done at the National Archives and Records Administration to address diversity and inclusion.


Featured is the keynote address—Getting Our House in Order: Moving from Diversity to Inclusion—by Chris Taylor, Director of Inclusion and Community Engagement at the Minnesota Historical Society. Chris notes that, “Inclusion is leveraging the benefits of diversity to improve our work through creativity, innovation, and inclusive working environments. Inclusion starts with an internal focus to identify how the field can support and incorporate inclusion into the foundations of our work. By getting our ‘house in order,’ we can then focus our inclusion efforts outward to connect with communities that have been historically under-engaged by the profession.”

101 - The Nitty Gritty of Open Copyright Licenses for Archives
Creative Commons licenses provide a streamlined, machine-readable method for releasing archival materials for reuse on the web. They can allow media to be used readily on Wikipedia, or finding aids from multiple archives to be combined into creative new linked data projects. Following an overview of the appropriate application of Creative Commons licenses for archivists, the presenters provide examples of innovative projects that use CC to make archival description and materials more widely available.

Repositories focused on popular music typically are relatively young departments found within research libraries or museums. The nature and wide public recognition of the subject matter provide archivists with unique opportunities and challenges for collecting, preserving, providing access to, and promoting archival materials to large audiences who often are unfamiliar with archives. The panelists address collecting strategies, media preservation, adapting traditional archival processing, and exhibit development, and then welcome Q&A with the audience.

105 - Betting on Archival Futures: What's in Your Restructuring Wallet?
Often the toughest archival advocacy is internal, but sometimes remedies lie within restructuring and the conviction to advocate for organizational change. Through four cases studies from diverse archival institutions, the panelists explore unconventional approaches to, and outcomes of, the restructuring process and demonstrate how restructuring can provide positive opportunities for internal advocacy and change.

109 - I Second That Emotion: Working with Emotionally Challenging Collections
Our collections are not simply objective records. Archivists document contentious tragedy and emotional outpouring, which affect us as they do donors and researchers. The panelists draw on archivists' experiences with emotionally challenging collections, including processing, working with donors, and supporting research interactions. Drawing on their own experiences, they delve into how emotions affect the profession in terms of collections acquisition, the perception of memory and truth, ethics within and outside the field, and so-called "objectivity."

111. Archives and Digital Inequality
Archival theorists have emphasized the power of archives to promote social justice and empower marginalized communities. Digital archives are sometimes presented as a tool to document diasporic communities and promote broader access to information. Yet scholars have challenged the ethical implications of models which may disfranchise communities from accessing their own heritage and knowledge. This pop-up session provides a forum to debate digital inequality and archives. How can institutions share authority over the creation of digital records with communities that don't have regular access to information and communication technologies? How can archivists work ethically with communities in developing areas with limited technology infrastructure and capacity? How can we raise awareness of these issues in the profession?

As a resource for the complex discussion, we have begun compiling an annotated collaborative bibliography on Archives and Digital Inequality, available at:https://docs.google.com/document/d/15Pg7Pb9EklNxp9ZCvkSCe5QyyYq78vKXdSI4of3TFo4/edit?usp=sharing 

We especially encourage reading the 2011 article by Peter Johan Lor and J.J. Britz in preparation for the session.

This pop-up session is for anyone who is interested in discussing archives, social justice, and digital inequalities. We especially hope that archivists working in public libraries will join the discussion.  One goal of the pop-up session will be to discuss ways in which we can continue to address these issues within or outside the professional infrastructure provided by the SAA.  

If you need access to a copy of the Lor/Britz article, please contact the session leader.

Professional Poster Presentations
P01 - Connecting Access from Metadata to MARC (Amy Leigh Allen, Mary A. Gilbertson, Deborah E. Kulczak)
This poster explores various workflows in reusing metadata to create catalog records using MarcEdit and XML Notepad at the University of Arkansas Libraries. To have one interface for searching older physical items and newer digital items, the archives and technical services department worked together to create two separate processes, one for honors theses in DSpace using Dublin Core metadata, the other for music concert recordings in Islandora using MODS metadata.

P02 - Preservation in Process: Behind the Scenes at the Georgia Archives (Ephranette Brown, Tracey Johnson)
The presenters highlight key preservation projects, existing services, and professional collaborations at the Georgia Archives since 2014.

P03 - Twentieth Century American Literary Collection Acquisition Patterns (Amy Chen)
Viewers will visualize American literary collection placement patterns and important variables to consider when soliciting writers' papers for your repository. The presenter solicits your feedback on her research for a forthcoming book.

P04 - Alumni Outreach for Special Collections: Partnerships and Approaches (Virginia Ferris)
The NCSU Libraries' Special Collections Research Center is actively building outreach to the alumni community through partnerships with alumni groups. Utilizing pop-up exhibits, makerspace technologies, visualization spaces, and the recently launched "Wolf Tales" traveling oral history stations, SCRC has created a vibrant visible presence within this community. This poster highlights examples and illustrates the power of these efforts to support advocacy, development, and more inclusive documentation of university history.

P05 - Cataloging Posteritati: Improving Access for Motion Picture Publicity Materials (Pat Frade, Rebecca A. Wiederhold, Cory Nimer)
In June 2015, the L. Tom Perry Special Collections established a new policy on cataloging published materials in manuscript collections to enable better discovery for researchers and reduce duplication of specific material acquisition. Motion picture publicity materials within manuscript collections would be the first to receive item-level description in the catalog. This poster describes the benefits, workflow, and decision-making processes that resulted from a successful collaboration between Special Collections and Cataloging.

P06 - Data Visualization: Accessible Entrepots (Hilary Gordon)
Digital humanities tools for data visualization are growing in prevalence and availability. Although the range of functions enabled by these tools can be daunting, this poster navigates basic options among some popular freely distributed programs, illustrates the kinds of visualizations that are accessible to those with no experience in digital humanities, and explores factors that are important in deciding which tool could be right for you.

P07 - Intrinsic, Added, and Enduring Value: Records Emergency Planning as Advocacy at the Georgia Archives (James Irby, Christine Garrett, Kim Norman)
This poster illustrates how disaster preparedness tasks inform a range of outreach initiatives that highlight the mission and holdings of the Georgia Archives. The Archives regularly schedules compliance meetings with government officials, promotes the professional development of archival practitioners, and delivers services and cultural enrichment to its patrons. You'll see how records emergency planning serves as an advocacy tool both within and beyond the Georgia Archives facility.

P08 - if (you are a digital archivist) then { you = "might need to learn to code"; } (Mary Kidd, Dinah Handel, Morgan McKeehan)
To support sustainable digital preservation plans, do I need to learn to code? Three National Digital Stewardship Residents endorse the benefits and practicality of understanding code and present case studies of programming coming into play throughout the preservation stages at three dynamic archives.

P09 - Enriching Collaboration: Processing the Records of The Wellesley Centers for Women (Sara Ludovissy)
How do two institutions that share a unique institutional and historical connection collaborate in a mutually beneficial processing project? The presenter explains the history of the Wellesley Centers for Women and Wellesley College, creation of a robust finding aid using ArchivesSpace, and how the project led to consultations on WCW's 50th anniversary celebration, planning of oral histories, and enhancements to related WCW collections.

P10 - Hacking Hemingway - Community Partnerships and Digital Collaborations (Leigh A. Tarullo, Emily Reiher)
"Hacking Hemingway: Cracking the Code to the Vault" is a digital history project funded by the Illinois Secretary of State and Illinois State Library that gives access to rare items from The Ernest Hemingway Foundation of Oak Park and the Oak Park Public Library. Illustrated is the unique partnership between the Foundation and Library that allows for shared resources, access, outreach, and participation in community initiatives in a meaningful way.

P11 - Digitizing Media(ted) Memories: The South Carolina Women's History Archive (Travis Le Wagner)
The presenter discusses an initiative to digitize video recordings chronicling the challenges and triumphs of women in local communities in South Carolina. Illustrated is what appeared to be a simple saving of deteriorating media through digitization but proved to be revelatory in reviving nearly forgotten moments of women's political and economic mobility in the state.

P12 - Box Labels and Bombshells: Assessing Archival Collections at New Mexico State U. (Caitlin R. Wells)
Wells reviews the planning and execution of an assessment of the historical collections at New Mexico State University, Las Cruces. Financial constraints required the department to be creative in scaling the assessment without additional staff, funding, or technology. The data collected have allowed the unit to begin implementation of an extensible processing program to reduce the unprocessed backlog and make the collections more accessible.

P13 - Everyone Has a Story: Using Digital Storytelling to Engage Undergraduate Students (Judith Ann Wiener, Kristin Rodgers, Brian Leaf)
This poster details how librarians and curators at The Ohio State University developed a for-credit course designed to introduce undergraduate students to special collections research and digital storytelling practices.

201 - From 0 to 400 GB: Confronting the Challenges of Born-Digital Photographs
It will happen to you, if it hasn't already: the campus photographer retires and leaves behind hundreds of photo CDs or a hard drive packed with JPEGs. What happens next? Digital photograph collections present serious challenges but offer opportunities to leverage automation (from deduplication to face recognition) and collaborative, cross-departmental workflows. Come hear this panel of experienced archivists discuss steps taken, lessons learned, and best practices developed for working (and teaching!) with born-digital photographs.

203 - We Can Work It Out: Building and Maintaining Donor Relations
Working with donors requires creativity, resourcefulness, emotional involvement, and a certain amount of tact that can differ substantially from one collection to the next. These skills are seldom covered in archival training programs; more often they're learned and earned through experience. Panelists representing a range of institutional perspectives provide a dedicated space to discuss--candidly--drafting difficult deeds of gift, working with emotionally charged collections, targeting and cultivating challenging donor groups, and managing legacy issues.

211. Deconstructing Whiteness in Archives: Opportunities for Self-Reflection
This workshop session aims to facilitate a dialogue among conference attendees about the consequences and legacies of whiteness/white supremacy in archives. The session is geared towards white professionals who want to critically examine how dynamics of whiteness affect their work. Anyone interested in contributing constructively may participate. Organizers hope to provide a collaborative and engaging conversation that complements SAA’s ongoing efforts towards cultural competency, diversity, and inclusion. Attendees should be familiar with SAA’s Initiative for Cultural Diversity Competence.

This session is designed to equip participants to critically examine their own experiences around whiteness in archives, engage in meaningful dialogue with colleagues and patrons at their institution, and begin developing strategies to disrupt oppressive and exclusionary practices in their sphere of work. Using the “Story Circle” methodology (https://roadside.org/asset/story-circle-guidelines) developed by Roadside Theater, trained facilitators will lead small groups in a participatory conversation. Following a brief introduction, all attendees will be expected to participate in a Story Circle. It will not be possible to accommodate late arrivals. Participants will be asked to respect strict confidentiality. The session will not be recorded or live-tweeted.

This proposal was inspired in part by dialogue around #ArchivesSoWhite (http://issuesandadvocacy.wordpress.com/2016/04/18/archivessowhite-intro-bibliography) and M. Ramirez’s 2015 article “Being Assumed Not to Be: A Critique of Whiteness as an Archival Imperative” (http://dx.doi.org/10.17723.0360-9081.78.2.339). Reflecting a working definition developed by LIS scholars Bourg, Espinal, Galvan, Hall, Hathcock, and Honma, participants will be asked to engage the concept of “whiteness” as both “the socio-cultural differential of power and privilege that results from categories of race and ethnicity…[and] as a marker for the privilege and power that acts to reinforce itself through hegemonic cultural practice that excludes all who are different.” (Hathcock, 2015

301 - 'Capstone Officials' and Public Records: Risk, Buy-in, and Archival Selection
Use of records schedules as appraisal tools works well for routine records held by low-level employees in public institutions. Records created by top-level public officials, however, can be more challenging to schedule. Using NARA's recent definition of "capstone officials" as a starting concept, panelists representing public universities and state and federal governments present case studies from their own institutions dealing with policy creation for capstone officials' records, records schedules and public records laws, and archival selection.

In responding to the call to measure and demonstrate value, archivists must confront the shifting value propositions of archives and grapple with the practical and conceptual limits of evaluative practices in telling the story of archival value. The presenters explore the "value story" of archives, examining: What are the different values at play in the archives? What values can and cannot be measured? What is the role of storytelling in communicating meaning and impact?

The urgency of representing African American history and culture as fully as possible is the driver of three efforts seeking to maximize the impact of Black collections and enable scholarship that sheds light onto parts of our history that haven't been broadly accessible. Through radical institutional partnerships and the use of technology, African American collections are working against centuries of loss and erasure to expand the historical record for students, scholars, and the general public.

For records creators tasked with managing and transferring their organization's records, tackling overflowing file cabinets and hard drives, navigating records policies, and following transfer procedures can be an overwhelming challenge.

311. Archival Records in the Age of Big Data
The large-scale digitization of analog archives, the emerging diverse forms of born-digital archives, and the new ways in which researchers across disciplines (as well as the public) wish to engage with archival materials, are resulting in disruptions to traditional archival theories and practices. Increasing quantities of ‘big archival data’ present challenges for the practitioners and researchers who work with archival materials, but also offer enhanced possibilities for scholarship through the application of computational methods and tools to this archival problem space, and, more fundamentally, through the integration of ‘computational thinking’ with ‘archival thinking’.

To address these challenges, in October 2015, the University of Maryland iSchool launched a major Digital Curation and Innovation Center (DCIC) initiative that brings together archivists and technologists from the US, Canada, and the UK fostering interdisciplinary partnerships using Big Records and Archival Analytics through public / industry / government collaborations (http://dcic.umd.edu/).  This was followed in April 2016 with a Symposium on Archival Records in the Age of Big Data (http://dcicblog.umd.edu/cas/symposium-program/) and will culminate in December 2016 with a “Computational Archival Science” workshop in DC at the IEEE Big Data 2016 conference (http://dcicblog.umd.edu/cas/ieee_big_data_2016_cas-workshop/).

Our pop-up session seeks to harness these latest developments by:


  • Addressing the challenges of big archival data, with a focus on archival records, cultural materials, and humanities research.

  • Exploring the conjunction of emerging digital methods and technologies around big data and their consequences for generating new forms of analysis and historical research engagement with archival material.


This will primarily be illustrated with concrete examples of collaborations and archival challenges.  We wish to engage SAA members to help establish a community of practice to develop collaborative engagement and research.

404 - We've Figured Out Our SIPs and AIPs and Now It's Time to Deal with Our DIPs
Access to electronic records can be achieved through many tools and infrastructures.  This session looks at institutions using similar digital preservation systems that are creating customizable platforms for access to a broad range of formats. Participants describe how metadata establishes connections between digital objects and existing management systems and finding aids, and make connections between practical applications and the knowledge and skills that educators and students in archives programs need to provide access to electronic records.

Archivists are collaborating with journalists to preserve the news in digital form. At risk is the last 30 years of reporting, created on obsolete or obsolescent platforms. The prospect of losing text, audio, graphics and video has increased as news enterprises struggle economically. Panelists feature updates from the University of Missouri's "Dodging the Memory Hole" initiative and from The Associated Press, which seeks to preserve its Text Archive.

The American Folklife Center (AFC), its academic partners, and members of the Passamaquoddy tribe are engaged in a collaboration to apply Traditional Knowledge (TK) labels for cultural attribution to digital preservation recordings of wax cylinders recorded by anthropologist Jesse Walter Fewkes in 1890. These cylinders represent the earliest known ethnographic field recordings in the world. AFC sees this kind of collaboration as central to a new paradigm of classification, curation, and methods of access for indigenous materials.

411. Practical Options for Incoming Digital Content
Due to the new and complex challenges presented by born-digital materials, many special collections and archives are struggling to develop and institute practical policies and procedures for the intake, selection, processing, and access of digital content.  Key to sifting through the possible options is the need to find out from others what has worked for them, and what has not.  In order to guide our choices at the University of Alabama Libraries, we developed a survey to uncover the selection of practical tools, the development of productive workflows, and recommendations that more experienced digital archivists have to share.  In May we are distributing this survey widely, and in June and July we will sift the results to generate guidelines that are useful for a range of material types, media, and formats.

We will begin the session by sharing the results of our survey, and asking attendees if they have useful tools to demonstrate or practical workflows to share in the areas of intake, selection, processing and access of any form of digital content.  Based on their responses and the interest areas of the attendees, we will divide into small groups around either the stage of workflow or the types of content (or both).  Attendees will be invited to share their own positive and negative experiences, and each small group will be asked to add notes to our shared Google Document, and to then share highlights of their discussion with the larger group. The Google Document will serve as a basis for future reference, and will be organized post-conference for increased usability, and the link shared again on SAA listservs.

The intent of this presentation is to engage participants in sharing useful information and tools, and to expand the capabilities of all participants to better manage their own incoming digital content.

Professional Poster Presentations
P01 - Connecting Access from Metadata to MARC (Amy Leigh Allen, Mary A. Gilbertson, Deborah E. Kulczak)
This poster explores various workflows in reusing metadata to create catalog records using MarcEdit and XML Notepad at the University of Arkansas Libraries. To have one interface for searching older physical items and newer digital items, the archives and technical services department worked together to create two separate processes, one for honors theses in DSpace using Dublin Core metadata, the other for music concert recordings in Islandora using MODS metadata.

P02 - Preservation in Process: Behind the Scenes at the Georgia Archives (Ephranette Brown, Tracey Johnson)
The presenters highlight key preservation projects, existing services, and professional collaborations at the Georgia Archives since 2014.

P03 - Twentieth Century American Literary Collection Acquisition Patterns (Amy Chen)
Viewers will visualize American literary collection placement patterns and important variables to consider when soliciting writers' papers for your repository. The presenter solicits your feedback on her research for a forthcoming book.

P04 - Alumni Outreach for Special Collections: Partnerships and Approaches (Virginia Ferris)
The NCSU Libraries' Special Collections Research Center is actively building outreach to the alumni community through partnerships with alumni groups. Utilizing pop-up exhibits, makerspace technologies, visualization spaces, and the recently launched "Wolf Tales" traveling oral history stations, SCRC has created a vibrant visible presence within this community. This poster highlights examples and illustrates the power of these efforts to support advocacy, development, and more inclusive documentation of university history.

P05 - Cataloging Posteritati: Improving Access for Motion Picture Publicity Materials (Pat Frade, Rebecca A. Wiederhold, Cory Nimer)
In June 2015, the L. Tom Perry Special Collections established a new policy on cataloging published materials in manuscript collections to enable better discovery for researchers and reduce duplication of specific material acquisition. Motion picture publicity materials within manuscript collections would be the first to receive item-level description in the catalog. This poster describes the benefits, workflow, and decision-making processes that resulted from a successful collaboration between Special Collections and Cataloging.

P06 - Data Visualization: Accessible Entrepots (Hilary Gordon)
Digital humanities tools for data visualization are growing in prevalence and availability. Although the range of functions enabled by these tools can be daunting, this poster navigates basic options among some popular freely distributed programs, illustrates the kinds of visualizations that are accessible to those with no experience in digital humanities, and explores factors that are important in deciding which tool could be right for you.

P07 - Intrinsic, Added, and Enduring Value: Records Emergency Planning as Advocacy at the Georgia Archives (James Irby, Christine Garrett, Kim Norman)
This poster illustrates how disaster preparedness tasks inform a range of outreach initiatives that highlight the mission and holdings of the Georgia Archives. The Archives regularly schedules compliance meetings with government officials, promotes the professional development of archival practitioners, and delivers services and cultural enrichment to its patrons. You'll see how records emergency planning serves as an advocacy tool both within and beyond the Georgia Archives facility.

P08 - if (you are a digital archivist) then { you = "might need to learn to code"; } (Mary Kidd, Dinah Handel, Morgan McKeehan)
To support sustainable digital preservation plans, do I need to learn to code? Three National Digital Stewardship Residents endorse the benefits and practicality of understanding code and present case studies of programming coming into play throughout the preservation stages at three dynamic archives.

P09 - Enriching Collaboration: Processing the Records of The Wellesley Centers for Women (Sara Ludovissy)
How do two institutions that share a unique institutional and historical connection collaborate in a mutually beneficial processing project? The presenter explains the history of the Wellesley Centers for Women and Wellesley College, creation of a robust finding aid using ArchivesSpace, and how the project led to consultations on WCW's 50th anniversary celebration, planning of oral histories, and enhancements to related WCW collections.

P10 - Hacking Hemingway - Community Partnerships and Digital Collaborations (Leigh A. Tarullo, Emily Reiher)
"Hacking Hemingway: Cracking the Code to the Vault" is a digital history project funded by the Illinois Secretary of State and Illinois State Library that gives access to rare items from The Ernest Hemingway Foundation of Oak Park and the Oak Park Public Library. Illustrated is the unique partnership between the Foundation and Library that allows for shared resources, access, outreach, and participation in community initiatives in a meaningful way.

P11 - Digitizing Media(ted) Memories: The South Carolina Women's History Archive (Travis Le Wagner)
The presenter discusses an initiative to digitize video recordings chronicling the challenges and triumphs of women in local communities in South Carolina. Illustrated is what appeared to be a simple saving of deteriorating media through digitization but proved to be revelatory in reviving nearly forgotten moments of women's political and economic mobility in the state.

P12 - Box Labels and Bombshells: Assessing Archival Collections at New Mexico State U. (Caitlin R. Wells)
Wells reviews the planning and execution of an assessment of the historical collections at New Mexico State University, Las Cruces. Financial constraints required the department to be creative in scaling the assessment without additional staff, funding, or technology. The data collected have allowed the unit to begin implementation of an extensible processing program to reduce the unprocessed backlog and make the collections more accessible.

P13 - Everyone Has a Story: Using Digital Storytelling to Engage Undergraduate Students (Judith Ann Wiener, Kristin Rodgers, Brian Leaf)
This poster details how librarians and curators at The Ohio State University developed a for-credit course designed to introduce undergraduate students to special collections research and digital storytelling practices.

How do digital and non-digital archives staff collaborate to process born-digital materials? A diverse group of archivists representing academic, religious, and medical repositories explore this question in the context of their own institutional workflows. This session posits the theory that we are approaching a post-specialist landscape in which the digital archivist is no longer the sole custodian of born-digital collections and all members of the repository team have a role to play.

What goes where? It can be a monster of a problem when a donation arrives on your doorstep that has little or no connection to your community or institution. Additional problems arise when a collection that logically belongs in your repository is housed elsewhere. Academic and local government archivists share their stories of finding the proper home for--or bringing home--historical records, and discuss options for community collaborations.
