2:30 – 3:10 PM: Roundtable discussion

The afternoon’s facilitated roundtable will bring together people in the DC area who work directly with communities on digital preservation to discuss projects in which the people whose experiences and memories are being digitally preserved are central to the projects. The approach of community-based digital preservation demonstrates an alternative community model that can inform a more ethical means of digital stewardship and equitable knowledge sharing of how to implement digital preservation tasks. Each participant will have a few minutes to provide background information on their project, and then a facilitator will help pose questions and lead discussion between the speakers. Audience involvement will be strongly encouraged.
