A pair of wooden sandals carved and worn by Songye people in what is now the Democratic Republic of the Congo, early to mid-20th century (Object IDs 84.599A and 84.599B).

Once again the Digital Production Group (DPG) is partnering with the Stanford University Archaeology Collections (SUAC) team to bring 3D scanning technology into the classroom to enrich the study of artifacts by Stanford students. This autumn we were invited to participate in the class, “African Archive Beyond Colonization”, a seminar co-taught by Dr. Sarah Derbew and Postdoctoral Scholar Denise Lim, who is breaking new ground at Stanford with the Africa Collections Project.

Just published: Final report of the Lighting the Way project

November 29, 2021
by M.A. Matienzo

The Lighting the Way project team is pleased to announce the publication of Facilitating and Illuminating Emergent Futures for Archival Discovery and Delivery: The Final Report of the Lighting the Way Project.  Lighting the Way focused on exploring how networks of people and technology impact archival discovery and delivery (how people find, access, and use material from archives and special collections) and focused on engaging directly with practitioners – archives, library, and technology workers – involved in this work, across roles, job functions, areas of expertise, and levels of positional power. Through a series of in-person and virtual events, the project applied participatory, generative facilitation methods to allow participants to develop future-oriented visions of how to transform archival delivery while also bringing their own experience to bear. The final report is available through the Stanford Digital Repository at its DOI (doi:10.25740/jm302fq5311) and is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.
