Abstract

A Digital Archivist and an Instructional Technologist team up to discuss how, together, we manage various stages of the Digital Humanities project lifecycle in the context of a small liberal arts college. Our accomplishments and lessons learned include, but are not limited to:

1. Developing retention and archiving policies for DH projects to meet short-term and long-term project goals.

2. Educating faculty and students about the implications of sharing their identity and work online in an Open Access environment (with special consideration of FERPA), and documenting student consent regarding privacy and online publication.

3. Navigating multimedia, linked, and dynamic content when archiving class blogs at the end of a project’s life.

Our collaboration has broken down the silos we previously worked in and enabled our teams to perform more effectively. Instructional Designers are now ready and empowered to suggest a variety of sustainability measures at the start of a new DH project, therein making their partnerships more impactful. The College Archives is now able to document online curricula and student work in new ways, most of which support Open Access principles and enable freer re-use of quality academic products. This session will review our approach to the full DH project lifecycle with helpful use cases and examples. In addition, we will share our policies, forms, and documentation to those who would like to reuse for their own context. Finally, we also hope to engage attendees in a conversation about how they address sustainable DH with success in their organization.
