Lighting the Way Forum presentations to be livestreamed on February 10, 2020

January 31, 2020
by Mark A. Matienzo

Lighting the Way: A National Forum on Archival Discovery and Delivery kicks off with a series of livestreamed presentations on archival discovery and delivery on February 10, 2020 from 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM Pacific Standard Time (GMT-8).

We encourage you to register for the livestream in advance so you can join in for what we hope will be an engaging set of presentations on four key themes:

  • The Evolving Systems Ecosystem: What software and other systems do we use to make archival discovery and delivery possible, and how is that changing within institutional contexts?
  • Networks and the Big Picture: What issues are impacting archives and libraries at the level of the sector, consortia, or beyond, related to discovery and delivery?
  • Ethical, Legal, and Cultural Concerns: How have factors like privacy, cultural protocols, copyright, and others impacted our ability to address archival discovery and delivery, on a technical, operational, or strategic level? 
  • Impacts on Public Services and Outreach: How does archival discovery and delivery fit within the front-line work of library and archives workers focused on reference, outreach, public service, and community needs?

For more information on the event, see agenda and detailed list of presentations. Follow the event on Twitter using the hashtag #LTWForum.

The last few months have been busy for the Lighting the Way project, but we realize that not all of that activity has been visible. As you may know, we will also be hosting Lighting the Way: A National Forum on Archival Discovery and Delivery in just three weeks at Stanford University, from February 10-12, 2020. Accordingly, we realized that now is an appropriate time as any to provide you with some updates with what our project team and participant advisors have been working on since September 2019.
