2017 UT Digital Preservation Symposium, Breakdown: The Space Between Action and Expectation
Friday, April 21, 2017 - 10:00am to 2:00pm
Peter O'Donnell Jr. Building , POB 2.404A
This symposium seeks to bring together information technology professionals, archivists, curators, librarians, faculty, graduate students, undergraduate students and others willing to share their experiences and contribute their perspectives on digital preservation and long-term access.
This year focuses on Breakdown as an opportunity to shine light on information systems that are mostly invisible. By sharing our stories of Breakdown, we create a space for critical reflection on campus information infrastructure - users, assumptions and gaps. Together, attendees will be asked to share, reflect and collaboratively problem solve.
The theme, Breakdown: The Space Between Action and Expectation, builds on the 2016 symposium Intersections, which sought to locate possible overlaps, intersections, and partnerships that could help us think about digital preservation as a university-wide priority.
The 2017 UT Digital Preservation Symposium, Breakdown: The Space Between Action and Expectation, will take place on Friday, April 21 at the Texas Advanced Computing Center's Visualization Lab in the Peter O'Donnell Building for Applied Computational Engineering and Sciences (POB), Room 2.404a.
