Engaging Collections: at the Intersection of Art with Libraries, Archives, and Special Collections, with Lydia See
ABSTRACT: Engaging Collections is an online journal and emerging creative residency at the intersection of art with libraries, archives, and special collections. Our mission is to fund artists to share untold narratives through public artworks that build community and demystify historical collections through an equity-based lens. This presentation will discuss the original goals of Engaging Collections at its outset and its focus on equity, the pivot to an online journal during COVID-19, the hopes for deeper integration between artists and archivists (and other library science professionals), and future plans for the initiative.
BIO: Lydia See is a multidisciplinary practitioner, educator, and curator of art + archives who is passionate about the uses of art for social justice + civic engagement. She is a recent awardee of the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation AllforNC Fellowship, Director of Engaging Collections, a practicing studio artist, an educator of students from early childhood through end of life, and she believes that cultural access has the power to transform lives. She is especially interested in facilitating new pathways for participation in museums, galleries, libraries, archives, and special collections.
Image Analysis for Cultural Heritage with Naomi Langer
ABSTRACT: This thread discusses the "how" and "why" of using targets and image analysis software (GoldenThread) in a digitization workflow to ensure successful digital preservation of our collections materials, from the perspective of the digitization lab at Kelvin Smith Library, part of Case Western Reserve University.

The Right to be Forgotten + digital archives with Virginia Dressler
ABSTRACT: Digital archive managers are routinely faced with the conundrum of processing takedown requests, particularly around personal names. Requests are often faced with differing decisions by the individual, with an inherent conflict between the desire for erasure (or Right to be Forgotten) and the desire for a comprehensive, searchable digital archive.
BIO: Mrs. Virginia Dressler is the Digital Projects Librarian at Kent State University. Her specialty areas are project management of digital projects and reformatting of analog collections for open digital collections, including overseeing the Daily Kent Stater digital archive project (daily student newspaper) and working with the university's unique collections. She holds an MLIS from Kent State University and MA in Art gallery and Museum Studies from the University of Leeds.

What's hiding in your disaster cache? How your disaster supplies can help fight the global pandemic with Kara McClurken
ABSTRACT: Most of us don't give much thought to what's in our disaster supplies until we need them. But cultural institutions have many of the PPE (personal protective equipment) that our health systems and other essential personnel need in order to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases.
