Information Access Seminar

Stewardship: The Scope of the Challenge

Friday, September 30, 2022
3:10 pm to 5:00 pm PDT

Clifford Lynch

I’ll continue the discussion from September 16 exploring the nature of the (digital) cultural record through a series of detailed examinations of developments involving particular genres of content. After completing the discussion of recorded music from the last session, we’ll discuss moving images (video and film); geospatial and remote sensing broadly; the web, including the “deep” web and consideration of new modes of grey literature and emphemera; and, time permitting, social media and its implications for stewardship.

This discussion will continue on November 4.

This seminar will be held both online & in person. You are welcome to join us either in South Hall or via Zoom.
