Presentation 1
How to Be a 'Mad Archivist': Digital Project Labs, FOSS Tools, Radical Collections, and the Value of Creative R&D.
Discussing the creative side of digital archivists' craft, with special attention to how digital librarians and archivists can leverage institutional strengths, professional collaboration, FOSS technology, open data, and bantam attitudes in order to make innovative contributions to the broader community — and why liberal arts colleges should support those efforts.

Presentation 2
The Slow Road to DH: or, What Use is the Grad Certificate Really?

This presentation will address my take on the usefulness of attaining graduate certification and how to stay in the DH pool, even if on the periphery.
