Tool Selection & Management: Finding the Right Tool for the Job
Limited Capacity seats available

Digital archivists work with a variety of tools, such as simple command line scripts and stand-alone products, to complete systems that accomplish multiple tasks. Using a sample workflow, Kussman walks through the steps to consider when choosing and implementing tools, including understanding what task you are trying to make easier by using a tool; understanding available types of tools; exploring and testing options; making a selection; installing the tool; and using the tool within your existing or developing workflow. She’ll also touch on tool maintenance issues, such as documentation and upgrades. (This course focuses on tools utilizing the Windows operating system environment. Where possible, Macintosh alternatives will be provided. The use of these products does not represent or imply SAA endorsement. SAA Education encourages the use of open source software and tools.)

Tool Integration: From Pre-SIP to DIP
Limited Capacity seats available

This course is now full. If you would like to save a spot on the waitlist, please contact SAA at (312) 606-0722.

There are no silver bullets—no single piece of software can or should cover all aspects of digital preservation. Eckard explores options for suites of tools that can work together to approach a full solution to the software component of digital preservation. He’ll cover the basics of workflow and systems integration, including: why and how to integrate; the "glue" that holds systems together into workflows and allows them to connect; real-world examples of both proprietary and open-source software integration; and efficiently managing “handoffs” of data and metadata from one system to another. (Note: Bringing a laptop to the course is recommended but not required.)

Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) started in 1937 as a public agency to transmit and market hydroelectric power generated from the Bonneville and Grand Coulee dams.  The Federal Columbia River Power System has since grown to 31 dams, as well as non-federal dams and one nuclear plant. These dams generate clean, renewable, carbon-free hydropower for the farms, businesses and residents of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. BPA is a vital part of the PNW economy, as well as a conservator of the fish and wildlife whose habitats have been impacted due to the dam system. The abundance of hydropower generation during World War II enabled BPA to supply electricity to aluminum plants, ship building, Boeing, and other manufacturers of war materiel on a 24/7 basis.

The BPA Archives consists of promotional films and brochures, hundreds of thousands of still images, and thousands of documents in its Library, written for, by or about BPA. The documents have all been scanned; the photos, negatives and slides are in process, and most of the films have been digitized and made available on DVD and YouTube.  All this content will soon be available to the public through a digital asset management system. The Archives also holds a number of research collections, such as the 400+ box Sam Moment Aluminum Collection, and receives donations from inside and outside the agency. The BPA Library recently opened a Visitor Center that gives a museum-quality experience in a small space, with exhibits on all phases of BPA history, geography and other aspects of the expanse of BPA in the Northwest. You are invited to visit for a tour and talk with the archivists. Space is limited!

Shelf to Screen - Promoting Analog Collections through Exhibition
Limited Capacity seats available

How do you incorporate original archival material into public programs and exhibitions that are inexpensive to produce, garner good press, and can be adapted to a variety of venues and audiences? Cowan shares ideas and tools for creatively incorporating photographs and moving images in non-digital environments (bars, galleries, theaters, etc.). He will take you through the steps of curating programs, building community partnerships, navigating organizational culture, exhibition logistics, program building, and funding sources. You’ll also have the opportunity to learn about equipment and AV materials use and care through hands-on manipulation of media, including projectors, splicers, and other AV equipment. The lecture will apply to any archival materials, and exercises will focus on the details of original motion picture film (16mm and 35mm), glass lantern slides, and original photographs.

DAS Comprehensive Examination
Limited Capacity seats available

The DAS comprehensive examination is the culminating requirement to receive a Digital Archives Specialist certificate. As this is a certificate program, the exam covers material taught in a specified series of courses rather than testing broad knowledge (as a certification program would). As such, questions are developed based on course content. SAA has structured the program so that those interested in taking the comprehensive examination take courses from across the curriculum; although there is no expectation that an individual take each of the courses, knowledge across the scope of topics is beneficial.

102 - The Future of Appraisal and Processing of Digital Materials: Software, Strategies and Scalability
Although many of our peers face issues of appraising and processing digital materials at scale, we have yet to come together as a community to discuss the future of appraisal and processing and to share our struggles and successes.

204 - Representation Without Leadership: Assessing Stress and Gender in the Archival Workplace
The archival profession has become female-dominated but still faces traditional gendered leadership limitations. Documentation of this duality relies on anecdotal evidence rather than systematic, confirmatory research. To address this deficiency, the panelists developed a survey to measure workplace stress. Standard psychological instruments were used to analyze how workplace stress affects archivists' professional lives, if workplace stress disproportionately affects female archivists, and whether there are gender differences in role overload.

Brown Bag Lunch: The American Archivist Article Discussion

Registration required for this Brown Bag lunch discussion. Send email to Abigail Christian (achristian@archivists.organd in subject line indicate “American Archivist Brown Bag lunch.” The PDF of the article will then be sent to you.

Be among the first to read and discuss the forthcoming article, “Surveying Archivists and their Work toward Advocacy and Management, or ‘Enterprise Archiving’” by Sarah A. Buchanan, Jane Gruning, Ayse Gursoy, and Lecia Barker, which will be published in the Fall/Winter 2017 issue of The American Archivist. The article presents results from a spring 2014 survey gathering data on the work archivists do and competencies required for this work. Research questions sought to measure or describe (a) the nature of everyday archival work, (b) the frequency of specific interactive and materials-based tasks, (c) the greatest challenges of the archivists' work, and (d) recommendations for further emphasis in graduate archival education. The results show that much of the communication that archivists must do is “enterprise archiving,” which centers around advocating the value of well-managed archives. Recognizing prior efforts to raise awareness of professional demographics and skills used on the job, this article is a continuation of initiatives aiming to transform data gathered about professional activities and competencies into broader public support for archives and archivists. The journal’s editor, Greg Hunter, will lead the discussion.

Open Forums: SAA Diversity Committee
Diversity and inclusion have become buzzwords in the field of archival science, whether in developing collections, supporting graduate students, or providing outreach. Less has been said about the lived experiences of the representatives of "diversity" in our profession itself. Archivists from marginalized communities often end up standing as representatives for a broader whole in ways that make navigating the profession more complex and challenging than it is for others. This forum, sponsored by SAA’s Diversity Committee, features panelists who are established archivists from a variety of backgrounds and identities who explore and explain the personal and structural state of "inclusive" archives.

Reaching In to Reach Out: Examining the State of Inclusivity Across Libraries, Archives, and Museums

Preserving and providing access to cultural heritage is central to the work of librarians, archivists, and museum professionals. With the increased focus on diversity, whether in regard to staffing, users, collections, programs, or services, inclusion has risen as an extremely important concept. However, inclusion can and does mean different things to different people. Six panelists from across libraries, archives, and museums (LAMs), job functions, administrative levels, and academic backgrounds come together in this facilitated conversation to discuss the state of inclusion from their vantage point. By looking across sectors at how inclusion is defined and approached, we hope to identify what is being done well and the challenges we face in creating inclusive environments. This program will also be held at the annual meetings of the American Library Association in June 2017 and the American Association of State and Local History in September 2017. The central findings of the programs held at all three conferences will be compiled together in a white paper documenting the state of inclusion in libraries, archives, and museums.

Mini-Theater: Film Scanning using a Camera; Challenges and Solutions (Presented by Digital Transitions)

Much of our shared cultural heritage is held in film collections, a material type that poses obvious challenges to balancing access and preservation. For years the only option for digitizing film was legacy film scanners. These are painfully slow, often require conservation-unfriendly handling. They are also falling into technological obscurity which creates issues with OS/driver support and repairs. Scanning film with a camera promises better image quality, much faster throughput and non-contact handling, but it also poses many challenges. During this presentation, we will review the various challenges to scanning film with a camera such as alignment, vibration, focus drift, lens quality, illumination spectrum, negative inversion, and batch handling along with solutions to these challenges.

Art of the Archive: The Intersection of Archives and Art
A Lecture/Performance by Jennifer Strayer and Geoff Wexler

Archivists and artists may work in very different sorts of professions, but there is a great deal of overlap in what they do. In fact, many artists are themselves archivists—of a sort—and archivists often become artists. When art intersects with archives, many innovative and imaginative things may occur.  The lecture will explore many aspects of this issue with a focus on relevance to the archivist.  From the medieval wunderkammer of European nobility to the contemporary artworks of people like Andy Warhol and Christian Boltanski, we will look at artists who draw on established archives or actually create archives of their own. We will see how these artists use materials in ways that may never have been thought of before, challenging conventions of what is suitable to retain and what may actually constitute an archive.

As an adjunct to our lecture, we will present a performance piece developed by former Oregon Historical Society library director Geoff Wexler, based entirely on archival material from the vast repository of OHS collections. Mr. Wexler will provide live piano music as part of the performance.

AV Archives Night

AV Archives Night has become an evening of entertainment and awareness each year at the Society of American Archivists’ Annual Meeting. This year—our fourth—AVPreserve will again co-sponsor the evening with the Association of Moving Image Archivists.

The 2017 theme is social justice, with a special focus on civil rights and immigrant stories. Oral histories, news footage, music, and just about any other kind of audiovisual content will be accepted, but submissions supporting our goals will be prioritized to:

a) spotlight social justice, and

b) celebrate recently digitized or acquired audio and visual collections with a local or regional focus made available by the hardworking archivists in the regions near the conference. We would love to see representation from collections in the western and northwestern US, especially, but all submissions will be considered.

The schedule of events for the evening includes:

  • Annual AV Archives Night Screening, with over 14 submissions from archives across the US
  • T-Kay | Archivist, DJ | http://dublab.com/labrat/labrat-t-kay/ | @tttkay
  • Glass Plate Zero | the one-and-only all-Archivist band |  @helrond, @rorasaurus, Heather Fox, & Gino Pasi
  • Coast2c (Gran Ritmos | Blankstairs) | Special Guest, honorary Archivist | https://soundcloud.com/coast2c | @coast2c

 

It will take place at the Mission Theater and Brew Pubr at 1624 N.W. Glisan in Portland. You can read more about the event and see food and drink menus at the Mission Theater’s site.

302 - Declassification Across Presidencies: Policy and Practice in the Obama and Trump Administrations
Declassification in the federal government is governed largely by executive order, which traditionally is modified--sometimes dramatically--by each new presidential administration. Declassification also occurs through the publication of the Foreign Relations of the United States series at the Department of State, the publication of which is required by law. Declassification specialists discuss the state of declassification policy and practice in different agencies and initiatives across two presidential administrations.

303 - Between You and Me: Policy and Procedure in Navigating Sensitive Information in Oral Histories
Oral history collections offer original content to researchers. The steps taken "behind the scenes" before these records are accessed are unique. Four archivists at various stages of creating and implementing policy reveal how they use and share primary sources while excluding sensitive and confidential information. Hear how a freelance writer and historian, an archivist from a private art museum, an archivist from a public museum, and an oral history administrator walk this fine line--gracefully.

310 - Beyond the Finding Aid: New Directions for Archival Description

Archivists are accustomed to finding aids, but as technology provides new options for description and discovery, some archivists are asking whether the finding aid is the best tool for all of our materials. Featuring archivists from the corporate, public, and academic sector who work with both manuscript collections and institutional archives who will moderate discussion groups, this session provides attendees with the opportunity to explore the future of archival description with colleagues.

311. Pop-Up: Digitization Matters: 10 Years Later

In 2007 OCLC Research and the Society of American Archivists held a seminal meeting to explore barriers preventing institutions from scaling up digitization of archives and special collections. Inspired at the time by book scanning projects spearheaded by Google and the Internet Archive, participants examined what was preventing libraries from doing more to get collections into the hands of users. A report from that meeting, “Shifting Gears: Gearing Up to Get Into the Flow,” summarized these (sometimes contradictory) ideas for making digitized special collections more ubiquitously available.   

Ten years later, digitization of archives and special collections has moved across the spectrum from boutique scanning and carefully curated online exhibits to massive digitization projects that have converted millions of pages of documents and microfilm for online access. There have been major advancements in access to digitized materials through state-wide digital libraries, the partnerships that formed HathiTrust, and the emergence of the Digital Public Library of America as an aggregator. Legally there is growing support for digitization as a fair use and a value added contribution. Once only accessible to the most privileged of users, archives and special collections are now available to diverse populations around the world.    

Yet, are we any closer to reaching the scale we imagined ten years ago? Are the challenges and solutions to large-scale digitization any different? How has the landscape changed, or remained the same, in special collections and archives? How should special collections and archives approach digitization in the future? What opportunities lie ahead?   

Moderated by Merrilee Proffitt, OCLC Research, this panel discussion will include Erik Moore from the University of Minnesota and Michelle Light from UNLV, and will encourage audience feedback.

In recent years archivists have struggled to document the work of activists in their communities. Working together in small groups, session participants are able to grapple with questions and create solutions to more effectively document the historical record of social movements and communities. By exploring our shared experience, we hope to move the profession forward in its documentation of often-marginalized activists' work.

411. Pop-Up: Forget the Best: Good and Better Approaches to Preservation

Preservation resources often emphasize “best practices.” Having an optimal collections care program might be desired, from electronic compact shelves to completely processed collections. However, not everyone has the funds for a high-tech HVAC system or the staff time to develop a preservation plan. With limited staff, time, and money often the norm, how do institutions find ways to implement preservation practices that are feasible and sustainable?   

This session will focus on how institutions forgo the “best” in favor of “good” and “better” approaches to preservation, highlighting how to make preservation a component of any archives program, even one with little to no resources. Panelists will draw on their own experiences providing guidance to varied institutions through their work at the Conservation Center for Art & Historic Artifacts as a part of the Preservation Services Office. They will briefly present common, feasible recommendations often given to repositories in the areas of collections care, environment, policies, security, emergency preparedness, and more. The remainder of the session will serve as a platform for discussion and questions about how attendees have addressed preservation concerns with limited resources.   

This session is intended to address the needs of all archivists. Whether one is a lone arranger, special collections librarian, or university archivist, finding feasible solutions to preservation issues is a must.

Government Records Section

The Section's annual business meeting is followed by three presentations. The first is the SAA Government Records case study initiative by Laura Saegert, Assistant Director of Archives, Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC). SAA is publishing a series of case studies designed to facilitate an understanding of issues and challenges related to the management of government archives and records.

Next, Mark Myers, Senior Electronic Records Specialist, Texas State Library and Archives Commission, will discuss how TSLAC has gone from not accepting electronic records from state agencies to encouraging transfers into the Texas Digital Archive. Part outreach, part salesmanship, part technical support, Myers will talk about the Texas experience and seek to learn what works, and what doesn’t, from the other members of the Government Records Section.

Last, we will get an update on activities at the National Archives from Meg Phillips, External Affairs Liaison, particularly in relation to the Presidential transition as it affected three things: 1) preparations, guidance, etc. for Federal agency records management staff and briefings for incoming political appointees; 2) NARA's role taking custody of the Obama records and briefing the incoming White House staff on their Presidential Records Act responsibilities; and 3) Public interest in this transition, including press and Congressional inquiries in the Federal Records Act and Presidential Records Act issues, and NARA's interactions with the Data Refuge and related movements that aim to "rescue" government data that scientists and others believe to be at risk. A discussion period will follow.

Mini-Theater: Cold Storage in Museums (Presented by Spacesaver)

Cold storage is essential for the long-term preservation of film, animal pelts, and other materials that tend to deteriorate quickly. Cold storage presents a number of challenges, though, including how to assess and organize collections, how to plan and implement a move, and how to make the most effective use of expensive cooler or freezer space. René Oconnell, the image archivist at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, will discuss how she and her colleagues consolidate, organize, and store materials that require cold storage.

Participants will learn:

  • which visual media need to be stored in cool or cold conditions
  • how to distinguish between acetate and nitrate film
  • how to plan and implement a move to cold storage
  • how to monitor and troubleshoot common issues with coolers and freezers 
  • how to make the most effective use of expensive cooler or freezer space

How can archivists create a diverse record or recruit and retain a diverse workforce? Whose stories are being told—and by whom? Where are the silences in the record?

Caldera and Kathryn M. Neal.

Issues of social justice and its application to archival practice have been written about by Jimerson, Greene, and Ramirez, and reflect a degree of divisiveness within the profession as well as today's American society. This presentation uses hip-hop performance and open discussion to actively define social justice as a guiding principle for archivists to use as a statement of preservation's place and mindset.

507. Pop-Up: Getting Personal: Rethinking What "Personal" Means in Archives

This session explores the meaning and potential of the ‘personal’ in archival theory and practice. Typically, archivists understand personal archives as a category of record, a particular thing: what if we think about ‘personal’ as a relationship or approach to records, recordkeeping and use? How might this change how we think about records, including institutional records, and the different functions record-keepers undertake?    

Two presenters are working on a project reconsidering personal archives to show that what makes a record ‘personal’ is the relationship between the record and its activator (to borrow Eric Ketelaar’s term). The other two presenters recently completed a survey of Canadian archivists’ understanding and experiences of secondary trauma. We’ll begin with a brief introduction to these projects and how they reframe what ‘personal’ means in relation to the records we care for, how we care for them, and our roles as caretakers. Through this introduction, we’ll begin to situate archives as a “contact zone” (CLIR, Terra Cognita: Graduate Students in the Archives, 2016), characterized by different personal relationships and interactions.    

We’ll then break into groups, facilitated by the presenters, to discuss particular questions.
These might include: 

  • What does ‘personal’ mean in archives?
  • When does archival work get personal?
  • When might the personal become problematic in archival work?
  • Is there room for the ‘personal’ in an institutional context?
  • How does making room for the personal affect the archival endeavor?


The session will end with groups coming together for a larger discussion about archives and relationships: Does something need to change in the archival mindset and practice to accommodate and embrace the personal? If yes, what might it be? And how does this start to happen? Notes will be taken and circulated via a Google doc; it’s hoped this session will spark ongoing discussion within the archival community.

The Liberated Archive: A Forum for Envisioning and Implementing a Community-Based Approach to Archives
We know that “Archives Change Lives.” Come explore how Archives Can Change Communities and Communities Can Change Archives!

THE LIBERATED ARCHIVE: A FORUM FOR ENVISIONING AND IMPLEMENTING A COMMUNITY-BASED APPROACH TO ARCHIVES

The Liberated Archive goes beyond good intentions to explore how archivists might partner with the public to repurpose the archive as a site of social transformation and radical inclusion. There are two goals for the Forum:
  • To provide community members with tools, techniques, and human connections that they can use to transform themselves as they need and desire, and
  • To provide archivists with tools, techniques, and human connections that you can use in your own community to transform the way in which the human record is documented.

From an inspiring opening plenary session… to 10 concurrent panel discussions… to an afternoon unconference that you’ll help to plan, you’ll explore a different kind of outreach that depends on collaboration, communication, and hands-on work to build trusted relationships and make friends and advocates. This is a hands-on way to grow your user base!

It's time to question the historical consequences of prudery more closely than ever?and to keep controversy, evidence, and revelation as our meticulous goals. The presenters open discussions on obstacles to the documentation and promotion of sexually explicit collections. Bring your own roadblocks: Is it particular body parts; is it articulate copywriting; is it job security; is it self-censorship? We aim to cultivate and support the courage and success of our colleagues who are willing to document sexual topics.
