School's back in session!

We're proud to support the Nearby Studies initative through Chris Berkowitz by maintaining a custom course website, through which students submit Oral Histories to a growing corpus of material covering the lives of locals as well as write and comment in a cross-disciplinary space.

This year, the conference is being held at the University of Toronto. Kim served on the organizing committee as Tutorial Chair to evaluate and select tutorial proposals for the conference. The schedule is packed with a number of interesting sessions with great topics such as web archiving, indexing and enhancing digital collections.
