LAC Preconference Welcome and Keynote Talk
Join us for the opening of the DLF Liberal Arts Colleges Pre-Conference, featuring welcoming remarks by Franny Gaede, Chelcie Rowell, and Bethany Nowviskie as well as a keynote talk on “the role of college and university archives in documenting and dialoguing dissent student activism on campus,” by Jarrett Drake.

Keynote- Jarrett Drake: "Documenting Dissent in the Contemporary College Archive"

College and university archivists have a duty to document the whole of their campus communities, including and especially the activities of students combatting racism and other forms of oppression and discrimination within the institution. In these cases, college and university archivists must reject notions of neutrality and instead decide to document dissenting voices ethically, responsibly, and critically but do so with an explicitly anti-oppressive and radically inclusive approach to appraisal and description.

 This talk will argue that documenting dissent amongst the student body offers college and university archivists an opportunity to revisit, revamp, and refine their missions within institutions of higher learning.

#DLFforum Plenary: Welcome, Awards, and Keynote Talk

Join us for the opening of the 2016 DLF Forum! We'll be introducing Forum fellows, thanking our sponsors and organizers, presenting our first annual DLF Community/Capacity Awards, and hearing an important keynote talk by Stacie Williams.

Keynote: 

"All Labor is Local"

 


Labor, to riff off a more well-known phrase, is an inherently "local" concept—viewed subjectively through the backgrounds of both those who perform it and those in positions of power who create and or influence policy around it. Both perspectives are deeply political. On the eve of Election Day, this keynote will explore the ways in which we, as employees and employers, apply our local experiences to how we perform the labor in libraries and archives, and what we can do to broaden those perspectives to be more inclusive of the communities we hope to serve.
Presenter: Stacie Williams

Avoiding techno-service-solutionism: Applying infrastructural perspectives and learning theory to digital humanities practice in the library
Many librarians express interest in digital humanities but perceive a gap in their technical expertise, thinking they need to learn to code or become familiar with tools.

We draw insights from learning theory and infrastructure studies.

Presentation 2
Improving the Reported Use and Impact of Your Institutional Repository (IR)
The value proposition of institutional repositories (IR) is built largely on the number of publication downloads they sustain.

Plenary: "Open Invitations:" closing DLF Forum community session
For 2016, we’ll continue our new tradition of closing the DLF Forum with a discussion-oriented, community-based panel rather than the single vision of a keynote talk. 

"Open Invitations"
You might think of the whole DLF Forum as an open invitation. Invitations to lend your expertise, learn in community, and get involved come from our various, year-round working groups; from teams that present their work at the Forum; from our member institutions and affilated organizations seeking partnerships; and from the grassroots community efforts that spring up within and around the Digital Library Federation. Our closing panelists will make some of those invitations explicit -- and then invite the audience to issue more! How can you join an effort to advance the field? What does your group need to move forward? Come ready to listen, make connections, and make your pitch.

Ally Skills Workshop

Participants must register separately through ConfTool and pay an additional fee. 

DLF’s Project Managers group is proud to sponsor an Ally Skills Workshop at this year’s Forum.

Ally Skills Workshops teach simple, everyday ways to support women in their workplaces and communities. Participants learn techniques that work at the office, at conferences, and online. The skills taught are relevant everywhere, including those particularly relevant to open technology and culture communities. At the end of the workshop, participants will feel more confident in speaking up to support women, be more aware of the challenges facing women in their workplaces and communities, and have closer relationships with the other participants.

Everyone is welcome to register for this event through ConfTool, although places are limited and an additional workshop fee is being charged.

Workshop facilitators: Bess Sadler (Stanford University Libraries) and Mark Bussey (Data Curation Experts)

Ally Skills Workshops were a program of the Ada Initiative, which offered official training to facilitators like ours, in order to continue and expand its tradition of supporting women in open technology and culture.

#digipres16 Keynote Talk by Bergis Jules

Bergis Jules will open Digital Preservation 2016 with a keynote that focuses on the power and promise of diversity and inclusivity in digital preservation work:

"Confronting Our Failure of Care Toward the Legacies of Marginalized People in the Archives" 

The politics of what we've traditionally preserved means the archive is fraught with silences, absences, and distortions, mostly affecting the legacies of the less privileged, including black women, LGBTQ people, immigrants, poor people, and victims of police violence. The more selective and specialized space of digital collections preservation prioritizes professionalism, technical expertise, and standards over a critical review of the cultural character of our records. Thus it's an appropriate place to begin asking questions about the diversity of our digital historical records. Who gets represented in the digital historical record is closely tied to who writes the software, who builds the tools, who produces the technical standards, and who provides the funding or other resources for that work. This talk will address the lack of representation in the digital preservation space, the implications, and what we can gain from diversifying and making that space more inclusive.

Closing Plenary Talk: Building Communities of Practice for a Culture of Innovation

Allison Druin will close the conference with a talk focusing on her work as Special Advisor for National Digital Strategy at the National Park Service:

The speed of change in the digital world makes it difficult to point to just one tool, technology, or “digital infrastructure” that can support all the education, conservation, and historic preservation priorities of the National Park Service. It is that combination of data (content), software (interactivity), and device (context) that can address the priorities of NPS for the next century. It is important to remember that digital infrastructure can change more quickly than physical infrastructure. The power of digital is that it is so malleable for change, but this is also the challenge. The speed of change and the scale of impact, is unprecedented. Digital innovation makes use of a variety of new tools that can address future challenges with novel solutions. Yet, innovation can be disruptive, transformative, and can still be an achievement that leads to new shared infrastructure. 

Given this landscape of change and opportunity, we have to ask, how do we create communities of practice that can become true communities of innovation? How can we support workforce development, and build leadership pipelines for the digital work we must undertake?

 The opportunities are there, but the challenges are many when considering constrained resources, silo-ed structures of leadership, and federal regulations. I will talk about these opportunities and challenges for the next century of service.
