Abstract

Conversion to or within the digital domain is integral to the preservation, access, and stewardship of digital collections, but how does one measure its effect on the modern research ecosystem beyond its ability to provide a means for access? Decisions made in any conversion phase have great influence on outcomes of preservation, access, and digital scholarship. As such, conversion in the context of digital preservation models and theories about knowledge production plays an important role in digital curation and the production of human wisdom. This talk will inspire you to think about how librarians and archivists are unified with the digital humanist and to see how digital scholarship and conversion have a tendency to influence each other’s goals, aims, abilities, and outcomes toward sustainable and innovative stewardship of digital collections.
