In this workshop, librarian Emily Clasper, a nationally recognized project management expert, will give a hands-on approach to project planning basics that will appeal to a variety of different library staff. No prior experience is necessary as attendees will work through some of the principles of project management and how they relate library projects.Sponsored by TSRT.

Are you ready to maximize learning opportunities for young children in your community? Come discover the power of intentional activities that are grounded in developmentally appropriate practice in early childhood.

The Ethics of Access: Engaging Critically with Digitization Goals and Challenging Content

Description: This pre-conference workshop will take up a range of ethical issues surrounding the digitization and accessibility of archival content. The workshop will start with a discussion of the presenters' recent essay, "The Case of the Awgwan: Considering Ethics of Digitization and Access for Archives," which explores ethical issues related to the potential digitization of a campus humor magazine of the early twentieth century, one which depended and traded upon negative and destructive depictions of women and people of color as a key part of its "humor." Using this article as a jumping off point, the workshop will then take up a range of other potential ethical questions related to the digitization of archival and other historical materials. Sponsored by IF.
