This conference and workshop organized by the American Antiquarian Society will focus on digitization, cataloguing, and research design. Experts in book history, curators and librarians from university and independent research libraries will exchange ideas about the past, present, and future of historical information literacy and the archive. Following the conference, concepts and methods will be more deeply explored in a five-day workshop dedicated to practice-based learning in digital humanities in the AAS’s major areas of archival development and research. Intended for faculty and graduate students interested in archival research, as well as students in library and information sciences, the workshop will discuss archival practices of acquisition, preservation, and cataloguing, survey best-practices for archival research and offer hands-on training in project-development.
