About the Event

At the 2020 Digitizing Hidden Collections Symposium, the collective experiences of those who have participated in the program’s more than 80 funded projects will create opportunities for reflection on the current state and future potential of digitization practice in collecting institutions, including how the digital cultural record can better reflect the diversity of human thought and experience, how law and ethics affect strategies for access, and how technologies and standards can improve discovery and learning.

The 2020 symposium, which is open to the public, is the third gathering related to CLIR’s Hidden Collections programs.
