211 - Soft Skills for Hard Tech: Tech Support, Tech Knowledge, and Tech Literacy in the Archives

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How does an archivist talk tech successfully? The archives world is increasingly tech-focused, from digital curation and digitization to help desks and software implementation. Panelists explore the ways in which archivists can adapt, adopt, or contribute to tech conversations to make our work easier and improve our user experience. Knowing how to communicate your archives' needs to the broader information technology community is critical in identifying what skills the archivists of tomorrow need.

Baker: Tech Support, Tech Knowledge, and Tech Literacy in the Archives
Crilly: Tech Boot Camps for One: Tech Literacy for Small Archives
Myers: Try and Succeed: Implementing Tech Skills in the Archives
Peachy: Translating Tech Speak for Better Archives Service
