Reimagining Access: Inclusive Technology for Archives & Special Collections -February 11, 2021

Please mark your calendars for Reimagining Access: Inclusive Technology for Archives & Special Collections, an Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) funded symposium hosted by ArtCenter College of Design.

The ArtCenter Library, in conjunction with Interaction Design Department and Designmatters, invites you to a symposium exploring how designers can work with people with disabilities to improve the user experience and accessibility of digital archives. I strongly encourage all librarians and archivist, especially BIPOC professionals, working or interested in this arena to participate in the free symposium.

The symposium will feature sessions on the current challenges of access to archives, industry design practices and initiatives, and emerging directions. Speakers include designers, archivists, librarians, and disability advocates. The full program and list of speakers is forthcoming.

The symposium is part of a grant-funded project from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and is held in conjunction with a spring studio class.
