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.
